Flakin' out with Loretta Lynn.

I remember the Crisco commercials with Loretta Lynn when I was growing up in the 80s. Those were the days... the days of every dinner consisting of cans and boxes transformed into "convenient" home-cooking... nevermind preservatives, chemicals and the trans-fat travesty. Back in the day, Crisco was what it was all about in the kitchen. You could fry up the chicken and whip up a pie from the same giant canister. 

This 1985 ad features Loretta's recipe for Chocolate  Angel Pie along with the promise that "Nothing's tastier 'cause nothing's flakier." And that's in quotes, folks, so believe!

Having a hard time tracking down the actual recipe... but I'm sure it's tasty. How can I be so sure you ask? Because "Crisco'll do you proud everytime."
