"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Directions:
Work together the flour, Crisco, and salt until crumbly. Add the cold water and mix together just a little until dry is mixed in. This makes a 2 crust pie. Divide in 1/2 and make ball. Roll out in a circle on a floured surface. Fold in 1/2 to transfer to pie dish then unfold, add filling then other crust wetting bottom crust's edge so the 2 crusts will seal together. Pinch edges together after cutting off excess crust. Make cuts in top crust so filling won't boil over. Sprinkle with sugar or cinnamon/sugar. Bake at 375 for 45 minutes. May have to put foil over crust edges to prevent too much browning. Single crust you need to prick crust with a fork before baking 15-20 minutes.
