Making The Pie Crust (2 crusts)
|Mix together 2 cups of flour, 3/4 cup of lard, & 1/2 tsp. salt|
with the pastry blender until "pea size".
|Add 1 beaten egg, and 3 TBL. cold water.|
Mix just until it all holds together. Use a smidge more water if you need to.
Divide into 2 balls (shown is 1 crust)
|Roll out the bottom crust.|
Don't even worry about making it "perfect" size.
Put it into a 9 x 11 pan.

Again, the president isn't coming to supper.
Don't stress over making it pretty.
Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until crust is brown.
