Doesn't this look Yummy!
A good pie will have a crust that is tender and flaky and tastes good.  To make the most flaky pie crust you would use lard.  Trust me, in college we did experiments with the fat part of pie crust being the only variable, and the flakiest was the crust made with lard.  I don’t use lard, so I use hydrogenated shortening.  It came in second with the test.  Butter didn’t even place.  So I use butter flavor hydrogenated shortening.  Yeah, that works:

Here is how to make flaky, tender, tasty pie crust.

Step 1:

½ tsp. baking powder
2-3 Tbsp. cold water
Rolling pin

I just made this (I bought a pie crust due to lack of time) and it was amazing!! Thank you so much for sharing!

I want to try a variation of this using beef since that's my hubby's favorite.
