Hi there! I'm Sarah and I'm a wife, mother, dog owner, and the writer of my blog
A Girl In Transit. First off I want to say how awesome Katie is. So creative and inspiring and I'm SO thankful that I'm sharing a recipe with you on her blog today. Thank you Katie! Below you'll find my own rendition of a family recipe. Mini Skandinavian Jelly Pies. The perfect snack to bake when you are craving a berry treat. Especially when berries aren't in season. Enjoy!
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup shortening (recommended: Crisco. I would also recommend the measured sticks of Crisco. Much easier to work with)
- Ice water
- Optional, sanding sugar
- Serves about a dozen
In a medium-mixing bowl cut the shortening and salt into the flour by hand or with a pastry blender until it's the texture of cornmeal. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of ice water over the mixture and mix just until the dough is moistened. Repeat by adding 6 to 8 tablespoons water (one at a time) until all the dough is just moist. Take care not to over mix.
