    Hi does anybody have a good pie crust recipe using lard.

    I was trying a recipe that called for 4 cups flour and 2 cups
    lard so I used one pound of lard (didn't measure) and 8 cups
    flour and haven't put in the water yet as it seem so lardy
    I don't know if I can fix it or not

    Defiantly chill or set in the freezer for a bit and do it in a cold area.

    Enjoy your many pies!! You can roll the dough into balls big enough for one crust and freeze it.
