Chief, I'll be looking forward to your pie crust hints. My great aunt made excellent, flaky crust and I never knew what made it special. Then someone else told a group of us the technique to perfect crust and proceeded to describe my Nana's process! Now I understand. Or not. Maybe. I might change my mind in the morning...

Addie mentioned pie crusts! Oh, my-------That was another thing I just couldn't make. Mine were so tough we had to scrape the filling out and eat it because you couldn't cut through the crust with a knife!

Then I discovered using lard for the crust. Since we were raising our own pigs at the time and I rendered the lard -----easy. That was the secret for my crusts.

Oh, and sugar cookies? Another disaster. They were so hard that someone, after tee many martoonies one night, sailed one across the kitchen just to watch it ricochet off the wall and land on the floor with nary a crumb lost.

Never tried to make sugar cookies after that. Never will. Pfffft.
