from the historic Stagecoach Inn in Colorado Springs
This recipe appeared on a 1948 postcard from a series of 16 entitled "Famous Recipes from Famous Eating Places". These cards came free inside packages of Aunt Jemima Pancake Mix.
2 cups fresh Colorado cherries, pitted   2 1/2 cups sifted flour
1 1/2 cups sugar   1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon flour   3/4 cup shortening
1 tablespoon butter   1/4 cup water
Mix flour and sugar, then stir in with cherries. Pour into pastry shell, dot with butter, and cover with pastry top. Bake slowly for 45 minutes in a 350 degree oven.   Mix flour and salt. Cut shortening into it until pieces are size of a bean. Mix well with water until dough comes together and can be shaped into a ball. Divide into 2 parts and roll out crusts. Makes two 9-inch pie crusts.
