Helen's Pie Crust

Helen's Pie Crust

1 cup lard*
3 cups flour
1/2 cup boiling water
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt

pour boiling water over lard and beat until creamy. Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir mixture together thoroughly to cool.  Put on well-floured board and roll out.
*Make sure you use pure lard. Most lard sold in the store is hydrogenated and very bad for you. The lard in my picture above was purchased at Ashery Farms, Heath, Ohio. It is a pure lard.
This recipe would make enough for 2 -10" pie crusts. Any leftover can be used to make cinnamon rolls.
