Pie Crust No. 1

Basic pie crust. Simple, yet so varied. There are three basic pie crust recipes. Basic Pie Crust No. 1 with Crisco, that I tried today. Basic Pie Crust No. 2 with oil and Basic Pie Crust No. 3 with butter and cream cheese. The flour and fat ratios vary but by today's Crisco version, I felt pretty confident in my crust making skills.

That, and that I had decided to fill it with guayaba and queso (guava and cream cheese), so I was pretty excited to get to baking.

I've never been a big sweets fan. Give me a croqueta over a cupcake any day.

But these pie crusts, and the pies that come with it, have been quite the treat. Easy, delicious and perfect vehicles for whatever you'd like to put inside - sweet or savory.

A giant pastelito de guayaba y queso, as one reader called it. Yes. Yes indeed.
