Next make the following pie crust:
Mix 2 cups of flour and 1 cup of Crisco together, Next add 1 cup of water and a pinch of salt. Mix until combined, turn out on to a floured surface needing until well combined.
Next take a small amount and press into each muffin place. Making sure to come up on the edges. You can pinch edges up if you want to make them more fancy, however I just do the rustic look! Most of the time people are to busy eating to notice!
The next step is to fill your pies. For the cherry I just use a can of cherry pie filling, spoon into pies, then on top I sprinkle a little sugar, cinnamon, and add a very small amount of butter.
For the Lemon Chess Pies: Mix together well, 3 eggs, 1/3 salt, 3Tablespoons of softened butter, 1/4 cup of lemon juice, 1 1/2 cups of sugar. Spoon mixture into pie crust. Bake at 375 for 40 minutes until crust are brown and lemon is set! Let pies cool for about 10 minutes then take out and place on rack to cool completely. (I use a spoon to get pies out, I find it works better.)
These are Megan's favorites! Happy Birthday!
