Apple Berry Pie from Food Storage

NOTE: I only used ONE crust (on the top) and put the other crust in the fridge.

For the Crust
2 cups Shortening Powder
1/3 cup water at room temp
2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup ice cold water
For the Filling
1 cup Dehydrated Apple Slices
1 cup Freeze Dried Berries (raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, blackberries etc)
1 cup water
2/3 cup Brown Sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp salt
3 Tbs Cornstarch
4 Tbs lemon juice

FOR THE CRUST

1. Reconstitute your shortening by mixing the powder with the 1/3 cup water. The powder will float on top of the water at first. Keep mixing and you will get a crumbly texture. Keep going until you get a liquid cream. Put this soft shortening in the fridge for 30 minutes until it has the texture of regular shortening.

2. Once shortening is ready, use your hands to mix it with four and salt until it resembles cornmeal.

3. Add water and mix until combined (DO NOT knead, just mix lightly)

4. Split dough into two pieces.

5. Roll out one piece on a floured surface until dough is very thin.

6. Fold in half twice so it looks like a triangle

7. Unfold it into your pie pan and “wiggle” it down (don’t stretch or pull / push it down)

8. Tuck extra down under the edge to create a “rim” around your pan.

9. Add filling to pie pan

10. Roll out 2nd piece of dough the same as the first and place it over the filled pie.

11. Pinch the two pie crusts together with finger on one side and thumb on the other to create a pretty edge.

12. Bake at 375 (dark pan) or 350 (glass pan) for about 1 hour.

FOR THE FILLING

1. Combine apples, berries, water, sugar, cinnamon, salt, cornstarch, and lemon juice in a small pot and bring to a boil.

2. Reduce heat to low and simmer for about 10 minutes. Apples will begin to break down and the liquid will turn into a thick syrup.

3. Carefully spoon mixture into pie crust.

Homemade Flour Tortillas ala Food Storage  (I haven’t made these — they just seemed like something I’ll want to try!)

A couple of notes:

DO NOT let your pan get too hot.  You may even need to turn it down before you finish cooking all the tortillas as the pan will continue to heat.
DO NOT cook the tortillas for too long: 20-30 seconds MAX on the first side and 20 seconds on the second side.
Roll and cook each tortillas separately.  If you roll them all first, they will shrink and become too thick before you get around to cooking them.

1 cup. all purpose flour
1 cup. White Wheat flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 Tbs THRIVE Shortening powder
1/2 cup+. water

1. Combine flour, salt, baking powder and shortening powder.  Add 1/2 cup water and mix. If needed, add more water a tbsp at a time, until it just comes together. I added about 3 extra Tablespoons.  You do not want the dough too dry.

2. Divide the dough and roll into 12 balls.  Let them rest for 15 minutes.

3. Take a dough ball, and flatten with the palm of your hand. Roll the dough out on a lightly floured surface.  (Do not use too much flour or the excess flour will burn when you cook the tortillas).  Roll the dough out very thin: it will become transparent.  As you roll it out, turn the dough a quarter turn with each stroke until it is about 6 inches in diameter.

4. Heat your skillet over medium heat: make sure it is hot before placing the tortilla on it.  Cook the first side for about 20-30 seconds, until it just begins to turn golden. Flip and cook the other side for 20 seconds. Place cooked tortilla in a ziplock bag.  This will keep it soft and warm while you cook the other tortillas.
