That crust be flaky. What fat did you use?

just Crisco........Cut in the Crisco to the sifted flour/salt til coarse crumbs then sprinkle whisked egg/water over the crumbs and work that into a uniform mixture....... divide in 2 and roll out....... as with all crusts, work the flour as little as possible....... and it'll be flaky. I'd like to try lard some time. Everybody says lard is the best for pie crust. 

2C Flour

3/4 cup  shortening

1/4 tsp salt

1 egg

3T cold water...................

It's our (me and my wife) go to crust recipe now. I got it out of a Southern Homes magazine in a recipe for a "peaches n' cream" dessert. It makes great fruit/berry pies, and pot pies too............ nothing like a home made chicken pot pie.

Now that the Sabres season is officially over, I'm drinking a lot less.  One benefit of a losing team.

Welcome back off the wagon.  Thought we lost you for... the last 20 minutes.

Just kidding.  Can't get away from the CR at family events.  It's a staple for us.

Damn, I was thinking you were referring to those Anchor Bar chips (that suck in my opinion) at first.  Gonna have to check these mofos out.

I’ll say it. Tabasco is better than Frank’s for cheesesteaks.

Ftr, I Love them both and think they both have their place.

Gourmet cupcakes suck. 

Boxed cake mix, and store bought frosting make the only edible cupcakes. 

These cutesy, all natural whatevers with homemade icing that looks like a sunset over Yosemite or some other ***** that are 4 feet high so you can't possibly bite into them are always positively awful.

Granddad was a baker.  Old-school.  You know, back when we had bakeries instead of cupcake shops.  And you're wrong.

Send me 1 good one and I'll say you're right. Just one. Cupcake food truck, any street festival or beer/wine festival. The cupcakes are always next to the lady selling CBD bath bombs and those kitschy little coffee mugs. Oh, they look incredible. They're awful!

He died about a week after Brett Hull cheated, I'm afraid.

 

EDIT:  But his bakery on Grant Street was legendary.  I had some random come up to me about ten years ago raving about the donuts and bread he used to get at some place called "Colonial" on Grant.  Yep, that was his.

Well, I didn't mean one from Gramps! Now I feel like a dick. I was making sweeping generalizations. It was supposed to be fun. Now I must go feel shame.

Oh, no!   Not my point!  All I meant is that old-school bakeries had really good cupcakes and stuff that you can't find today at your local cupcakery.  THOSE were gourmet cupcakes.

This all came about when my family and I were talking about foods that look amazing that we hate. Those cupcakes were mine. The wife said sushi. I'm not nuts about sushi, but I can eat it from time to time.
