This is very easy to make and to roll and very tasty. Trimmings can be re-rolled if needed THIS MUST BE CHILLED IN THE REFIRGERATOR FOR AT LEAST 8 HOURS. It can be kept in the refrigerator in a zipper bag for several days.

How to Make Boiling Water Pie Crust

Step-by-Step

  1. Pour boiling water over lard and beat til a smooth hot mass. Sift in flour and salt. Mix till well blended. Cover with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for 8 hours or more. When ready to roll just use what you need and refrigerate the remainder until later. I use a pastry cloth to roll my crust on. (A piece of canvas to fit my counter) For a prebaked shell. Bake 400 degrees for 12 minutes. Or for other pies bake as that recipe directs.
