Directions:
Scald milk. Add sugar and salt - cool to warm. Add yeast. Add 2 cups of the flour and beat one minute. Add eggs and beat until smooth. Add shortening and beat one minute. Add rest of the flour until a nice soft dough. Then let rest
10 minutes; and knead on floured surface until smooth ( about 5 minutes). Cover and let rise to double. Knead down again and let rest 10 minutes. Then take about a 7 ounce ball or about the size of a baseball - roll almost as thin as
pie crust. Fit into an 8 inch pie pan. Then arrange fruit of choice on top. The crust should come up the sides of the pan too. Then add about 3/4 cup of
cream mixture. Bake at 350 for 1/2 hour or until filling is set and doesn't jiggle in the middle.
