"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

Robin Hood


2 cups Robin Hood all purpose flour
tsp. salt
1 cup Crisco shortening
4 tbsps. ice water

1 cup sugar
⅓ cup Robin Hood all purpose flour
1 tsp. cinnamon
⅛ tsp. nutmeg
⅛ tsp. salt
10 baking apples, peeled and sliced
2 tbsps. golden flavoured Crisco

Preheat oven to 425F. Prepare pie crust combining flour, salt, Crisco and water together. For flaky pie crust do not over work dough. Combine sugar, flour, cinnamon and nutmeg in a small bowl. Sprinkle over apple slices. Toss lightly until apple slices are completely coated. Spoon filling into unbaked pie shell. Dot with golden flavoured Crisco. Moisten pastry edge with water. Cover with top crust. Fold top edge under bottom crust. Flute with fingers or fork. Cut slits or design in top of crust or prick with fork for escape of steam. Bake 425F for 10-15 minutes or until top crust begins to brown. Reduce oven temperature to 400F and continue baking for 40 minutes. Cool until barely warm before serving.
