The Recipe Within

I remember very clearly when my friend go married.  We were in college.  I loved making the trips to her hometown for bridal showers, getting together to help, and finally, on the morning of her wedding, helping her color her hair.  It was the first and last time I ever applied hair dye.

On the day of her wedding.  Yup.

I remember playing games at her bridal shower.  I won one of them and got this great cookbook from the dollar store.  All these years later, it is still one of my favorite cookbooks.

Here is the recipe I use most from it:

2 Pie Crusts

  1. 1 cup vegetable shortening
  2. 3 cups white flour
  3. 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
  4. 1/2 cup ice water

Mix shortening, flour and salt together.  Slowly add ice water until the dough forms a ball.  Split dough and roll out into 2 crusts.

What is your favorite recipe?  Is there a story behind it?
