Pie Crust V
Pretty straightforward. I used one large egg total. Folks need to remember that flours can vary by quite a bit and experience pastry (and bread) makers know this. Perhaps the recipe should make a note to add flour or water by teaspoon until the dough sticks together in a ball. I used a pastry blender, wrapped it in a pastry cloth in the refrigerator. I always used to have a difficult time rolling out doughs until I invested in a heavy marble roller and tile. These are put in the refrigerator or freezer to make them cold to reduce the stickiness that occurs when the butter/shortening gets too warm when working. All in all, a great and easy crust. 4 stars because of lack of dough consistency hints.

Creamy Rice Pudding
My husband likes the Kozy Shack brand of rice pudding, so last holiday season I made a recipe I saw on a celebrity chef cooking show. I thought it was okay, but the hubby howled in disapproval making it clear that it was not okay to serve this to him again. The message - do not mess with a classic and make it something high falutin'! Budget's a little too tight this month for a Kozy Shack indulgence, so I persuaded the man that I should try again and do it *right* ;-) I chose this recipe, and because I was using up pantry extras I added a couple of tablespoons of cream, and a package of vanilla sugar. I had some giant raisins and I soaked them in water first. To top it off, I sprinkled on a light dusting of nutmeg. I have redeemed my rice pudding reputation from the dust bin of Christmas past! Thanks for the great recipe - easy and just right for the picky guy.
