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!
I have struggled with pie crusts for years.... this by far the simplest and BEST ONE YET!!!!
When you consider how processed Crisco is lard is not a bad choice. A 8oz glass of 2% milk is 20 mg of Cholesterol. This recipe has a total of 1/2c more fat than my Good House Keeping recipe, which makes a good pie crust but not great crust. Lard makes a better crust than butter.
This recipe is wonderful! I have used it several times with great success. Chef Nasus, if you don't like lard, that's up to you and you do have the option of using Crisco. Please stick to reviewing the recipe not giving your nutrional views. Great recipe, Young!!
If the lard is so bad???? Why in the world did my folk farm and cook with it? That is the only way I know how to make a great pie crust. The 7up has me intrigued .... Thanks
I'm sorry, I was excited to see t his crust recipe UNTIL I saw the amount of LARD used. PLEASE PLEASE, if you are feeding people you love, DON'T give them LARD. Find a better alternative or go without. This recipe is probably perfect with the 7-up, great idea, just a poor combo imo.
Used this recipe many years ago and it was wonderful. Lost the it but I am so happy to have found again thank you for sharing.
