- 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- Pinch salt
- 1/2 cup lard
- 3 to 4 tablespoons cold water
In a bowl, combine flour and salt. Cut in lard until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle in water, a tablespoon at a time, until pastry holds together. Shape into a ball; chill for 30 minutes. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to 1/8-in. thickness. Transfer to a 10-in. pie plate. Flute edges; fill and make a lid with pastry. Decorate if you wish and make a small hole in the middle. Bake in preheated oven at 350 Fahrenheit ( 175 – 180 Celsius degrees ) for about 30-40 minutes, until golden brown.
