We’re on the move still trying to finalize our permits but the equipment has been delivered as well as the building.

Quick Recipe by Carol Waites
This is an easy way to fix a desert when I don’t want to do a pie crust or I don’t have one on hand…..It consist of ingredients I always have on hand…..It’s called Crazy Crust Apple Pie…
1 cup self-rising flour
2 tablespoons sugar
¾ cup water
2/3 cup solid vegetable shortening
1 can (lb. 5oz.) apple pie filling*
1 tablespoon lemon juice
½ teaspoon apple pie spice or cinnamon
Oven at 425 degrees
No need to sift flour: measure by lightly spooning into cup and leveling off. In small mixer bowl, combine flour, sugar, water, shortening and egg. Blend well at lowest speed; beat 2 minutes at medium speed. Spread batter in 9 or 10- inch deep dish pie pan. Carefully spoon filling into center of batter. Do not stir. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes at 425 until crust is golden brown.
For fresh apple pie: combine all ingredients in mixing bowl.
Fresh Apple filling: Combine 2 ¼ cups peeled sliced apples and 1 tablespoon lemon juice with 1/3 cup sugar, 2 tablespoons flour and ½ teaspoon apple pie spice or cinnamon. Pour into center of batter. Do not stir. Sprinkle filling with 1 to 2 tablespoons of brown sugar. Bake at 400 for 35 to 40 minutes.
*You can substitute cherry pie filling as well. Just omit the lemon juice and spices.
