“For more than 40 years thousands of housewives have used “LIGHT CRUST” flour exclusively and sung its praises to their neighbors to such an extent that “LIGHT CRUST” now stands at the head of the list, as the most dependable and popular flour in the United States. It is therefore to those housewives that we owe our phenomenal success and to them we dedicate this “LIGHT CRUST” recipe book as an appreciation of their patronage.”

Good Flaky Pie Crust
3 cups LIGHT CRUST flour

Do not knead at all, just mix and pat together, divided into fourths to make two pies with top crust or four custard pies. Roll out amount for pie, spread a little soft butter on, fold over twice and roll, pressing into shape for pie.
