Pie Crust

Just say no to pie crust! Not really, I just have never mastered the art myself. Pillsbury is my friend in this department. Someone else (perhaps Diane B) can tell us if this sounds like a reliable recipe – or not. Pie Crust 3 cups flour 1 cup lard 1 tsp salt Beat 1 egg … Continue reading

Pie Crust
