    Why can't people mind their own damn business?

    I remember when KFC removed trans fats from their chicken process at the behest of Michelle Obama. The resultant product tasted like shit, and KFC began to fall.

    The local outlets around here all closed within a year.

    I had a piecrust recipe once eons ago that used margarine, and it was a good crust, but that's on the no-no list, too.
    I gave up trying to make a decent crust a long time ago. Graham cracker or Mrs. Smith's. That's my motto.
    I'm just concerned for those who actually do manage to make a crust that can be broken with a fork alone.

    When I was young, my family moved to Australia ... where they don't have Crisco or any equivalent vegetable shortening.

    I can now understand why the Brits used the island as a place to put their worst criminals.

    No PIE? Or crust made from liquid shortening?

    All butter crusts ... good taste, not so flaky.

    Unless you're making a parve pie crust ... then it's margarine.
