Looks yummy. I'm glad it turned out well.

The lard will be objectionable if you are feeding any Jewish friends who keep kosher, and if you have any Muslim friends, the lard and the vodka together would be a double whammy.

I use 2/3 cup lard, 2 cups of flour, 5 tbsps ice water and a tsp of vinegar. I'm going to try the vodka thing though for my next pie!

SLOB, I can't speak for CWS, but I'm well aware of which friends keep kosher and I'd be pretty careful not to serve them a pie made with lard! Good of you to mention it for the newbies though.

I use the recipe on the Tenderflake package and make three pie crusts at a time if I'm not making a butter pie crust. Sounds like you got the Tenderflake recipe too.

Indeedy I do! I've yet to have it fail. I think most Canadian piemakers use Tenderflake! I only make mine one at a time though. I smash too many frozen crusts!

I use it mostly for tourtière and make three tourtières at a time and freeze two. That reminds me. I should make some tourtière soon. It's that time of the year and Stirling really likes my tourtière (Madame Benoit's recipe)

Madame Benoit was a genius! That's one of my favorite cookbooks.
