Picture of pie crust

pie is good. one of the few statements in our world that nobody denies. but what really makes or breaks a pie is the crust. forgive me if im wrong (highly doubt that i am though!) but this is one of the best recipes you'll ever find for a pie crust. For a golden, flaky, and tender crust,  here's a great recipe


.


Step 1: The recipe

1 lb Lard (we love the brand tender flake. but alas, we are only able to get that in canada. so if you ever go up there be sure to get some! its the best pie lard ever!)
4 1/2 Cup Flour
1 1/2 tsp Salt
2 tsp Baking Powder
Large Egg
2 Tbs Vinegar
Ice Cold Water
 
I have used the recipe on the side of the tub of tenderflake and the results are never what I want. Hopefully this one works better, I'll use it next time I try pastry.

Also, in your Step 2 it reads baking soda when I'm pretty sure you meant baking powder.

I understand completely that we simple folks down here in the States do not see or comprehend everything you people up there in Canukistan say...but would you consider telling us, once again, the amount of lard we should use.

I want to make a freekin' pie, NOW...so hurry.

1 lb = 2 cups = one package of butter here in the states

Hope that helps!

1 pound is the amount you need. : )
