This blog is for the posting of Vintage Recipes. I have inherited recipes from both my grandmothers, mother, aunts, etc over the years. I am also a cookbook collector with several old cookbooks in my possession. My goal here is to share with you older recipes that have been lost to many. I hope you will enjoy my blogs and some old memories will be revived by some of the recipes. Note:To save the vintage value of these recipes, I make no changes. You see the original recipe as written.

Especially for you Texans who miss Underwood Cafeterias.
1 cup shortening 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour 1/2 teaspoon salt cold water 1/2 cup butter
Filling: 1 1/4 cup sugar 1 pinch salt 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour 1 can cherries, undrained 1 cup water 4 teaspoons red food coloring
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Crust: Combine shortening and flour in a bowl and mix well. Add salt and enough cold water to make ingredients cling together. Roll the dough until it is very thin.
Cut up butter and place in a 9 x 13 inch pan.
Filling: Combine in bowl the sugar, salt and flour. Mix well. Add the cherries, water and food coloring. Mix well and pour over butter in pan. Top with rolled out crust.
Bake at 350 degrees F until brown. A little less than an hour.
This came from a family cookbook. It was originally from a wonderful Texas-based cafeteria specializing in delicious slow-smoked barbecued steak. There were Underwood's all over Texas back in the day, but today the only remaining cafeteria is the original, which is in Brownwood, south of Abilene.
