  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • 1/2 cup Crisco
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 tsp vinegar
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla

Heat oven to 350.

Mix all ingredients except cherries into a dough. Use 3/4 of the dough as the bottom crust – pat into 9×13 pan. Top with pie filling.

Roll out remaining crust and cut into thin strips; criss-cross strips in a lattice pattern over the cherries.

Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.
