The pastry chef at my last restaurant swore by the vodka method of pie crusts. Don't know if he used CI's recipe or not, the only things I really know are he liked vodka in it, and he insisted on Crisco (not the palm oil based shortenings).
Sorry, no can do we live 8 miles from the nearest shops and there'a a petrol ( gas?) strike on so shortage of petrol. We were going to take a drive to the beach but decided we'd better save on the petrol for the really necessary journeys ( like the Dentist next week )
