Master Lard Pie Crust Recipe

1. In a large-capacity food processor, pulse sugar, salt and flour together until well combined.

2. Then pulse together the lard and flour mixture until it all resembles coarse cornmeal.

3. Next, add the water while pulsing again. Continue until dough just comes together-you may not need all the water.

4. Turn contents of the work bowl out onto a flat, clean surface and gather it together into two discs.

5. Wrap dough and chill for at least 1 hour.

6. Roll dough in a lightly floured surface until big enough to fill pie plate.
