This year I’m hosting Thanksgiving in our home. I’m very excited about providing a Glorious lunch for our family in our beautiful new dining room that is completely empty at this point!! 🙂 We moved in exactly a year ago and I have yet to get a table. My husband and I have come up with the exciting idea that we are going to build our own table by Thanksgiving… Good Lord what are we getting ourselves into! I’m not sure we will be able to pull it off, but I’m really hoping that we can. If not, our guests will be eating on card tables this year. 😉 The room might not be glorious but the food sure will be! Over the next month I’m going to be sharing with you what I’ll be serving that day so hopefully you can get some yummy ideas and recipes to share with your families as well.
The first, and most important in my opinion, is the crust that makes our delicious pies. In my eyes my mom has been making the perfect pie crust my whole life! Nobody’s pie crust ever compares to my mama’s! It has the perfect amount of flakiness and flavor to offset what ever sweet filling you have on it. Plus it is super easy to make and pretty much fool proof. Hence the reason I’m able to successfully pull it off every time I make it! 😉
This recipe has been in our family for 3 generations. It was handed down to my mom from her mother. She isn’t 100% sure where my grandmother got the recipe from, but is thinking that it came from a cookbook back in the 50’s. I think the recipe is still my favorite and can’t wait for you to give it a try as well.
- 1 1/3 cup flour
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/3 cup corn oil
- 3 Tablespoons cold water or milk (I used milk in this recipe)
- Combine all ingredients in a bowl and form into a ball.
- When you are ready to roll out the dough be sure to roll it out onto a floured surface. And to also flour your rolling pin.
