Banana Squash Pitta with Crisco!

Memories of childhood always include my grandmother Pauline Xanttopulos' Banana Squash Pitta -- a "horiatiki" (village), rustic-styled creation with a crust made from scratch that is light in its own way due to multiple layers of dough rolled together. She depended on Crisco instead of the oil/butter mixture used back in her hometown of Naousa in Northern Greece...It's somewhat complicated compared to making pitta using fyllo dough bought at your neighborhood supermarket -- but well-worth the effort! Check out more details at my "Greek-American Family Notes" blog HERE.
