My grandparents came to visit during the holiday, and grandma was baking pies for the holidays, I watched her
for a long time, throwing flour, shortening etc. on a board. I finally asked her to show me how she did it. I ran and got some paper and pen to write it all down. As I settled on a stool to start to write. She looked at me and asked why was I writing it down. I told her so I wouldn't forget. She laughed, as a young girl, she was told to remember all recipes and to keep doing it over and over. But, I got my way. Now we need to remember that grandma came from Hungary, and there was no measuring cups or spoons. So this is how it went. 2 handfuls of flour, 2 pinches of salt, and about that much vinegar, ( she alway added vinegar for a flakely crust). Roll on a floured board, add your filling and then bake. Well I had to have her measure her flour etc in the measuring cup or spoon. But, it never tasted the same as grandma's who learned as a young girl to add this or that till it looked good.Her pie crust were always flaky regardless of what kind of pie she was making that day. I was alway amazed how grandma's pies tasted be it a fruit pie or a cream pie, it always tasted delicious
