RECIPE FOR PIE CRUST USING PRAIRIE PRIDE FARM RENDURED LARD

THIS IS A GREAT RECIPE FOR AN OLD FASHIONED PIE CRUST USING LARD.  FLAKEY AND FLAVORFUL.  YOU CAN ALSO USE HALF BUTTER AND HALF LARD

 

9 INCH TWO CRUSTS:

 

2 c. flour
1 tsp. salt
2/3 c. lard
1/4 c. water

 

Mix flour and salt in a bowl. Cut in lard with pastry blender until small pea size particles are obtained. Sprinkle with water a little at a time. Mix with fork until flour is moist. Press into a ball and turn out onto a floured board. If making a two crust pie divide in half.

Roll out with rolling pin. Try not to use too much extra flour because it makes the crust tough. Roll out to desired size. Usually about 1 inch bigger around than the tin. Fold pastry in half and move up to pan. Unfold and put pastry into pan. Try not to stretch the pastry because this causes shrinking in baking. Sprinkle the top crust with a little sugar to evenly brown.
