Poor Man's Pie

The recipe for Poor Man's Pie came from Farmer's mom. It was
called that because way back then the main supplies of milk,
sugar and flour were pretty common in the pantry.
It may not be the prettiest pie, but it is delicious.

1 heaping C flour.

Add 1/2 C Crisco - I won't use any other shortening.

1/2 t salt.

Cut together with pastry cutter until crumbly.

Add about 3 - 4 T cold water and mix until it sticks together.
You may need to add a few more Tablespoons of water. You
want the mixture to just start sticking together.

Place on floured surface.

Roll out large enough to cover pie plate.

Bake 375 for 40 minutes or so. This is a little tricky. The liquid
will bubble. Keep it in the oven until the crust starts to get too
brown. When you take it out it will be soupy. As it cools, it
thickens.
