We just had our staff appraisals here at the Ranch. I got great marks in ropin', ridin', and shootin', but because of that unfortunate incident with the branding iron, I was deemed "not a team player." Grrrr. I understand it's going to heal up nice, anyway. That right, Jess?

Nope, too late for that; it's already started attracting drivel.

Apple Pie Recipe
CRUST (recipe makes one double crust):

2 1/2 cups white flour
2 tbsp. sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup cold butter, broken into small pieces
5 tbsp. cold vegetable shortening
8 tbsp. ice water

*Measure the flour, sugar and salt togetherl. Stir to combine.
*Add the chilled butter pieces and shortening to the bowl. Cut them in with a pastry cutter or knife. Don't over mix them.
*Add the ice water. Mix until the dough holds together (add a bit more water, if necessary).
*Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface, knead it together, then divide in half.
*Flatten each half into a disk, wrap in saran wrap and chill for at least half an hour.
*Roll out one of the disks on a lightly floured surface until you have a circle that's about 12 inches in diameter.
*Put the circle in a 9" pie plate, trimming any extra dough from the edges with a sharp knife (parents only). Return it to the refrigerator until you are ready to make the pie.
*Add filling (see below)
*Roll out the second ball of dough and cover top. Use a fork or your fingers to pinch the edges together. cut a couple slits in the top.

FILLING

1/3 to 2/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Pinch of salt
8 medium sized apples (a medium apple = about 1 cup)
2 tablespoons margarine

*Heat oven to 425 degrees.
*Peel, core and slice the apples. Try to keep the size of the slices even.
*Mix sugar, flour, nutmeg, cinnamon, and salt in large bowl.
*Stir in apples.
*Pour into pastry-lined pie plate.
*Dot with margarine.
*Cover with top crust and seal the edges. Cut slits in the top.
*OPTIONAL: Cover edge with 3-inch strip of aluminum foil to prevent too much browning.
*Remove foil during last 15 minutes of baking.
*Bake 40 to 50 minutes or until crust is brown and juice begins to bubble through slits in crust.

How many y'all rated on the curve? Our organization must have a certain percentage of rock stars, average Joes and worthless bums. This is pretty universally hated.
