How to Make Flipper Pie:

  1. Preheat oven to 375˚F.
  2. Blend cold butter into the flour using two knives or a pastry tool. Add salt, sugar and cut until it resembles coarse oatmeal. Slowly add vinegar and water (slowly) until you can knead the dough into a dough that holds together.
  3. Roll out on a flat, floured surface, until the dough is large enough to line a 10 inch pie pan. Chill in fridge.
  4. Soak flippers in water and soda. Trim off excess fat.
  5. Dry flippers and dip in flour. Brown in melted pork fat. Remove from pan.
  6. Add onions to the pan and stir in ½ cup flour. Cook for 2 minutes and then slowly add the milk and season with worsteshire.
  7. Return flippers to the pan. Pour mixture into rolled pie dough.
  8. Cover and bake at 300F for 2 hours.
