Lucie's 7-Up Pie Crust (idiot proof pastry recipe)

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Young Structural

This is a really simple, never fails, like and flaky pastry crust. Not too sweet, perfect for meat pie or lemon marangue pie (where you don't want a sweet pastry to overpower your marangue). (enough for 2 1/2 complete pies)

Ooooooh! This turned out so flakey & scrumptious! I've made too many dud pie crusts - this is definitely going to be my "go to" recipe! Thank you Young! Surprisingly Lard is not a bad word. Check out how it stacks up next to Shortening, etc. NO Trans-fats! Don't be afraid to use it & let it transform your pastries!
