Ingredients

    1/2 cups crisco
    2 cups flour - sifted
    1 rounded teaspoon baking powder
    1 teaspoon salt
    Milk to make a soft dough (3/4 cup approximately)

Directions

Sift flour, baking powder and salt together into mixing bowl. Add Crisco and mix with a pastry mixer. Add milk to make a soft dough. Should be slightly sticky. (recipe is calculated for 2% milk) Split dough into 2 even balls. Roll out pie crust for 8 inch pie pan (I usually use a glass pan). Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Take roasted Turkey or Chicken and break into peices. Add meat and gravy into pie crust. Gravy is for moisture in the pie. Roll out 2nd crust, cut vent holes and place on top of pie pan and filling. Wet the edges of the bottom crust and seal either by crimping or using a fork and remove excess from edge. Bake for 45 - 50 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Makes 8 servings.
***Calorie count does not include filling as it depends on how many ounces of meat you use as well as what kind of meat and how much gravy you use.***
