With a familiar crust recipe.
We saw a recipe for a crust like this one when we talked about Crisco’s pre-1940 recipe for crust in the entry for Ruth’s pie crust for one from Sun City, Arizona.
From the box of A.D. from Lutz, Florida, by way of Pennsylvania in the 1940s, and originating in Ohio in the 1920s.
