This recipe for Always Ready Pie Crust Mix struck me by surprise… I never knew you could do such a thing!
So, when this FREEZE-O-RAMA Mama saw this OAMC (once a month cooking) recipe in Sweet & Simple, I instantly knew it was going to be my Recipe # 3 for my In the Kitchen with Gooseberry Patch project with the Real Farmwives of America and Friends.
You just take 6 cups of all-purpose flour…
And 2 Cups of Shortening
And 3 t Salt
And blend it up with a pastry blender…
Truth be told, this was my first time using a pastry blender… and until now, I didn’t understand what the big deal was…
Now I do.
LOVE how easy it blends well… pastry stuffs 😉
Genius name if ya ask me… just sayin’
Now keep ‘er sealed up tight until you are ready to use it.
Now then I gots to thinkin’…
I probably won’t remember that 2 Cups mix should be mixed with cold water 1 T at a time (up to 6 T)…
Then I probably ought to note that somewhere…
Then I remembered the most fabulous markers (besides Sharpies) known to man… Wet Erase Markers.
You might recall that I recently discovered the most lovely fun way to keep track of my grocery list literally on my fridge!
So, it occurred to me that I could do the same right on the smooth side of my pie crust container.
