Merciful God, You are great in compassion and Your tenderness for us is without measure. We ask You to give us today our daily bread, and also provide for the needs of all of Your hungry children around the world. Through Christ Your Son and Our Lord. Amen.

Cherry Pie a la mode


...for breakfast. I know it's Lent, but to waste is a sin. :o)

Sorry, I have no recipe -- it was my mother-in-law's contribution to Sunday dinner. The cherries are from their very own tree (I'm sorry; that was just mean.)

At Margaret's request, my mother-in-law's pie crust recipe (I was surprised at how close it is to my own):

Pie Crust

1-1/3 cups flour
1/2 cup plus 1 T. Butter Crisco
1/2 t. salt
4 T. ice water

Measure flour and salt into a medium bowl.
Add Crisco and blend with a pastry cutter
until Crisco is small crumbs.
Add water by the tablespoonful and blend with a fork.

Is that crust as good as it looks?

Can you get the recipe?!

That "it was better" remark is just mean.

Posting the recipe makes up for it, though.
