Most Tender Pie Crust
150 mins (prep 150)
9 ingredients
2 servings
Adapted from Grandma! Lard produces one of the most tender and flakiest crusts out there, but the key (thanks WCA) is to buy a good quality, not over-processed or hydrogenated brand (i.e. Tenderflake) to avoid any “off” aftertaste. Grandma swore by her pie crust for years until Crisco took over the supermarket (sad since lard is actually cheaper and healthier than butter, containing less saturated fat, more monounsaturated fat and has no additives or impurities, like non-organic butter has (i.e. colour, antibiotics and hormones in cow feed) – this is simply her formula updated for the 21st century.Makes 2 9" single crusts
