    1. 1
      In a large bowl, combine the flour and salt. Stir to blend.
    2. 2
      Add the lard and rub into the flour with your fingertips until the mixture resembles course crumbs. (I cheat and use my stand mixer for this, or you could use a food processor -- or a pastry cutter).
    3. 3
      Add the egg, water and vinegar and stir with a fork until the dry ingredients are moistened.
    4. 4
      Form the dough into a ball and divide into 3 balls.(I refridgerate it at this point, at least 30 mins or longer Form a ball into a disk and roll it out to 1/8 inch thickness on a floured surface.
    5. 5
      Fit the dough into a 9-inch pie pan and trim the edges to a 1 inch overhang. Fold the dough under and crimp the edges.
    6. 6
      If not using now, form the remaining 2 balls of dough into disks, place each in a resealable plastic bag, and freeze for up to 3 months.
    7. 7
      Preparation time includes resting time.
