Personal Notes:
Lucy Blackburn, my husband's grandmother, was known for her pies in southeastern Iowa. She always made her own crusts that were always thin and flaky: perfect. I personally have never been able to replicate that crust--EVER!
Her Meringues were also perfection, glossy high peaks, flavorful not bland. Her trick was cream of tartar. Meringue, I can make thanks to her.
