How to Make ZUCCHINI CRAISEN SLICES (Think Apple Pie!)
- In a 2 cup measuring cup add 1/2 cup cold water.
Then ladle in the Crisco with a spoon, pressing Crisco down under the cold water. When the water level reaches up to the 2 cup line, you will have 1-1/2 cups of Crisco! (with no mess)
Pour all the water off.
Cut this into the flour mix, 2 knifes work well for this.
Add Crisco to the flour mix
- Roll out the top crust and lay it on top of zucchini.
Crimp the edges of crusts, all around the dish.
With a fork puncture the top,
many times,so it can breath.
Brush the top of crust with a little milk.
Then sprinkle the top with sugar.
Put in a pre-heated 350 degree oven,
and bake for 25-30 minutes. Watch.
Don't let the crust edges get to browned.
>>>>>Glaze for the cooled top, is 1 cup powdered sugar, mixed with 2-3 teaspoons water.
- Grandma says: Any cook worth her weight in salt...will always use the crust scrapes to make ittle bitty cinnamon rolls!.....YUMMY!
NOTE: The rolling pin in picture, was a bridal shower gift for me..in 1949! Oh My!....This year it is 64 years old! almost as old as me....LOL!!
You can take the end cap off and fill it with cold water.. that helps in the rolling!. Neat ya?
- INSPIRATION: After seeing Pat Durans recipe "TASTES LIKE APPLE PIE", her rendition from a recipe by Lynn Hamiltons posted on Taste of Home.
I was inspired to tweak it a little more for my taste. Golly but this recipe ..gets around! eh?
If you ladies like zucchini...please see a recipe book I composed Aug 2012. on JAP.
