This is the pie crust recipe found on a tub of hydrogenated lard. It is the simplest recipe I've found for pie crusts and it is surprisingly the best pie crust I've ever had actually. If you are a gen-x aged person like me you may have had a grandma that made pies with crusts that seem exceptional by today's standards. The secret is lard. Food.com has a very nice and useful guide to making a butter based crust, but it will never live up to the lard tub recipe. You may be thinking hydrogenated lard?? That sounds like death in every bite! We'll I won't sell this as a health food that's for sure, when have you ever eaten pie because of its healthy qualities?
