Pie Crust

Posted in /Cooking/Desserts/Pie on Sunday, September 10, 2017

Crust Ingredients

2 Tbsp Sugar
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
2/3 cup lard (in most stores you can buy Tenderflake lard right next to the shortening). I know it sounds horrible to use lard, but it really makes the best crusts!
6-7 Tbsp Ice cold vodka

Crust Directions

1. Place dry ingredients in a mixing bowl and cut lard into the dry ingredients
2. Next mix one tablespoon of ice cold water into the dry ingredients at a time until the mixture is unified.
3. Chill dough for 15 minutes in refrigerator
4. Roll dough out in a floured surface and place in a pie dish
