Understand the Magic

What truly makes Capon Springs different from other resorts are all the “extras” that you just won’t find anywhere else. Operated by multiple generations of the same family, you are welcomed into a warm and caring atmosphere where everything is based on the honor system.   The set-menu and meal times mean all you have to do is show up when the bell rings!

When was the last time you and your family had an opportunity to completely “unplug” and spend quality time together?  Now imagine how great it would be that as your Capon experience draws to a close, you actually feel completely relaxed, restored, and reenergized- and already dreaming about your return!

Pie Crust

One-Crust Pie:     1 c. flour     ½ tsp. salt     ⅓ c. lard    2T. ice water

Sift flour and salt together.  With pastry blender, or two knives used scissor fashion, cut lard into flour mixture until mixture resembles coarse crumbs the size of peas.  Add ice water; just enough to mix.  (Too much working results in a tough pastry.)  Lightly flour counter and rolling pin.  Roll out crust to 1/8-inch thickness.  Size “circle” to allow for approximately a 1-inch overhang.  Trim and crimp the edge, prick bottom and sides with fork. Bake at 450º for 10 minutes or until crisp and brown.  Cool slightly and add desired filling.

Sift flour and salt together.  With pastry blender, or two knives used scissor fashion, cut lard into flour mixture until mixture resembles coarse crumbs the size of peas.  Add ice water; just enough to mix.  (Too much working results in a tough pastry.)

Divide dough into two parts, 2/3 for the bottom crust and 1/3 for the top crust.  Lightly flour counter and rolling pin. Roll out bottom crust to 1/8-inch thickness.  Place bottom crust into pie pan, allowing for a 1-inch overhang. Add desired filling.  Roll out top crust, same thickness, making vent holes and/or decorative cut-outs and place on top of the pie, again allowing for a 1-inch overhang. Pinch edges to seal and trim. Crimp edges.  Bake as directed in recipe.  Makes one 9-inch pie.
