Flaky Pie Crust

Another one that is super easy to make and which makes 5 double crusts:
  • 5 cups flour
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 lb. lard
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tbsp vinegar
  • 1 egg – slightly beaten
  1. Mix flour, salt and lard together in a large bowl, using a knife to cut up the lard.  Mix until the size of small peas.
  2. Mix water, vinegar and egg together to make at least 1 1/4 cups liquid.  You may need to add a little more water if dough is too dry.
  3. Pour liquid into dry ingredients and mix with a fork until it leaves the sides of the bowl.
  4. Roll out using quite a bit of flour on the board.
  5. Bake at 400 for 5-8 minutes – crust only.  For a single or double crust pie – bake at 400 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.
