I found this site because I was looking for the original Fluffo shortening pie crust recipe. So far I've found several recipes I plan on trying, but not this particular pie crust recipe. I would still really like a copy of this recipe even though that brand of shortening no longer exists. My undying gratitude to any one willing to share this recipe with me. Thanks
