Favorite Pie Crust Recipe
- 5 cups all-purpose flour
- 3 tablespoons brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 pound lard
- 1 egg
- 2 tablespoons distilled white vinegar
- 5 tablespoons cold water
step 1: Measure flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder into large bowl. Mix thoroughly and cut in lard until dough is the size of tiny peas.
step 2: Break egg into 8 ounce measuring cup. Beat with a fork, then pour in vinegar. Add enough cold water to reach the top (you will have a total of 1 cup liquid). Pour over flour mixture a little at a time, tossing and stirring with a fork until all liquid is absorbed.
step 3: Shape dough into a ball, then divide into four equal portions. Wrap tightly. Can be stored in refrigerator up to 2 weeks, or freezer up to 6 months. Each portion will make 1 double crust pie.
