1 cup flour
½ tsp salt
1/3 cup lard
2 Tbsp water
For 9” Double Crust Pie
2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
2/3 cup lard
¼ cup water
Mix flour and salt in a bowl, blend in lard until particles are the size of peas. Sprinkle with water one tablespoon at a time mixing with fork until all flour is moistened.
Gather dough together until it cleans bowl sides. Press into ball (for double crust, divide in half).
Put on lightly floured surface. Roll out with rolling pin, do not add flour as it makes pastry tough. Keep pastry circular. Fold in half and transfer to pie pan.
For added fun, use a cookie cutter for top crust and cut out shapes to cover your pie!
