On to baking... Whether you are in Norway or somewhere else in the world, baking well is a "good thing".

The very first time I made apple pie was a disaster. I had found a recipe somewhere and did a lot of experimenting - the result guessed it...awful.

I had flour and dough all over the kitchen and I was very frustrated and discouraged.

Also, after adding sweet cream to the crust to make it "extra" good; and sprinkling a lot of sugar and cinnamon on the apples, what I made was not an apple pie - we still haven't figured out what I made.

If you have been searching for a recipe for a great, no-fail pie crust, you might want to try this easy pie crust recipe I received from Adora. It can be used for making chicken pot pies as well as for creating a fabulous quiche.

Recently, I brought an extra-large dessert to a get- together with family and friends, I made a huge pie. I used a double pie crust recipe and lined a 9" x 13" baking pan for my favorite lemon meringue pie.

I used the entire dough to fill the pan and brought the dough all the way up the sides of the pan and fluted the sides.

I baked the unfilled crust at 350° F for about 35 minutes until lightly golden.

Never-fail easy Pie Crust
Makes 2 pies with cover.

3 cups flour
1-1/4 cups vegetable shortening or butter
1 egg well beaten
5 tablespoons cold water
1-tablespoon vinegar
1-teaspoon salt

Sift flour and salt together. Cut in shortening or butter. Mix egg, water, and vinegar and combine gradually with flour mixture.

Chill pie dough in the refrigerator. Cut it into four parts; place onto a floured, non-stick baking surface or pastry board and put your rolling pin to work.

A nice benefit is that this pie dough will freeze well. So, next time you want to make a pie, your easy pie crust dough is "ready to roll".
