I have been married to a wonderful Christian man since 1976. The Lord has blessed us with two daughters and two sons. I consider each day the Lord gives me on the earth yet another chance to serve Him.

Flakey Pie Crust

I got this recipe from my mom, years ago. It makes for a very flakey pie crust every time. Very easy to work with.

(makes 2 pie crusts)

*1 1/2 cups flour
*1/2 teaspoon baking powder
*1/2 teaspoon salt
*1/2 cup lard (or crisco)
*1/4 cup water
*2 teaspoons white vinegar

~Whisk the flour & salt together in a medium size bowl.
~With a pastry blender or fork, cut the lard into the flour, until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
~Mix water & vinegar together.
~Slowly add to flour mixture a few tablespoons at a time, until the dough comes together into a ball.
~Divide dough into two.
~Roll dough out on a lightly floured surface.
~Put into pie pan, and fill with desired filling.
