1-1/2 cups flour
3 teaspoons Dr. Price's Baking Powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons shortening
1/3 cup cold water
1 quart pitted cherries
Sift dry ingredients together; rub in shortening very lightly with
fingertips; add water slowly, just enough to make stiff dough; roll
out very thin on floured board; line patty pans with pastry; being
very careful to have pastry come well over the edges of pans. Bake in
hot oven about 12 or 15 minutes; fill with cherries which have been
washed and picked over. Cover with syrup made as for strawberry pie
above, using 1/2 cup cherries instead of strawberries. Other fruit can
be used in place of cherries.
