Combine flour, celery seed, salt, and paprika; cut in shortening. Sprinkle with water, a tablespoon at a time, mixing with fork till all flour is moistened and dough clings together. Gather dough together; press into ball. Roll 1/8 inch thick on lightly floured surface. Cut into 6 circles the size of the casseroles. Cut slits near circle on top of each casserole.

Note: This is delicious! I made it in a 9"x10"x2" glass dish. This recipe was taken from ~ Better Homes and Gardens Good Food on a Budget 1975. This cookbook was my late MIL's and it was given to me after she passed away. I want to say right here that I am thankful for all the recipes that Mom sent me as a newlywed while we lived in Spain and from then on.

You have such lovely garden spaces! So serene looking ... the music is a nice touch, but I'm over tired and was trying ever so hard to stay awake .. relaxing is a good past time on a Saturday, eh??

Thanks for stopping by my Thrifty/Garden Home blog.
