Don't tell Ree that my attempt to make her
'Perfect Pie Crust' was an epic fail.
Here is the picture from her blog showing her rolling out the dough.
Lovely isn't it? Well, my dough was crumbly & a mess after I tried to roll it out.
It was so bad I didn't even take a picture.
I have made the crust for her 'Flat Apple Pie' & it was fairly successful.

Oh, I forgot to tell you I only had 1 cup of shortening & the recipe calls for 1 1/2 cups.
I added a 1/2 cup of cubed, cold butter hoping that would work.
I ended up smashing the pieces of dough into the pie plate.
After adding the apples I laid the dough pieces on top.
The finished pie, not too bad.
Hubby ate a big piece after dinner last night.
He said it was very good.
I have to take him at his word because I can't eat any.
I'm trying to get my blood sugar numbers under control.
