Butter Flaky Pie Crust
Because I don't trust my health to shortening, I use this recipe every time I bake a pie. It takes a lot of patience for it to come out just right. I recently ran across a recipe for tartlets which use 1 stick butter, 3oz cream cheese whipped together for every cup of flour. No water is needed. I think I will try this for my pie next time because the crust came out very flakey and tastey even though I had worked it quite a bit with warm hands.

This was perfectly easy for a great centerpiece. We put the fresh veggies inside lining the bottom with plastic wrap so it wouldn't get soaked and yucky. My suggestion is to spray the foil and pan with cooking spray and then wipe off with a papertowel so there is only the slightest amount left on. I was unclear when reading the directions if the dough should be wrapped around the bottom as well... and it should!

Creamy Dill Cucumber Toasties
We do something like this every year for Christmas Eve so we don't have to cook huge amounts of food. We mix ranch dressing and cream cheese (leave out the mayo). You can put it on any kind of toasted bread.
