Learn to make pie crust!

cherry pieAre you daunted by the thought of making homemade pie crust? Come join Preserving Traditions on Sunday, July 12 for a sweet lesson. Our teachers, Mary Wessel Walker and her dad, Jim, will lead us through making a real lard-and-butter pie crust and tart cherry pie filling. (If you don’t care for lard, you’ll be able to use butter or shortening in a separate mixer.)

Each participant will take home a ready-to-bake cherry pie! You’ll need to bring the following:

  • One generous quart of fresh tart cherries (we’ll pit them at the Grange)
  • 2 cups of sugar
  • A stick of butter (4oz)
  • A pie plate

Also, let us know if you can bring any of the following:

  • A cherry-pitter, either mechanical or the handheld plunger type
  • A food processor with a steel blade
  • A rolling pin

…and let us know if you prefer not to use lard. We’ll have vegetarian/vegan options on hand for you.

Cost is $5 (free for members of the Grange). Space is limited! RSVP at http://cherrypie.sign-up-sheet.com/
