    This is the closest thing to what my mother made when I was growing up (in the 50's). My mother (and my grandmother) made the best pie crust (always using pure leaf lard only). Everyone raved about how consistently good her pies were. Her refusal to use the then trendy "vegetable shortening" was the key to her success. I wish that I would have had the foresight to copy all of her old recipes. My daughters surely wish that I had! Thank you (Steve Wilwerding & Yummly) for posting this recipe!
