My Grandmother, Elizabeth Lee made her pie crusts this way and she taught my Mom and she taught all of the children in the family, even the boys. We had pie making contests and my brothers made much better pies than I did then.

How to Make Grandma Lee's Pie Crust


  1. Put flour, lard and salt in a bowl. Using a fork or a pastry cutter, work the mixture to pea size. Add the ice water & a little 7-up a Tablespoon at a time and gently stir till a soft ball forms. Most people don't add enough liquid - I make it sticky. Separate the dough into two and press into an inch thick circle wrapped in plastic wrap. Refrigerate 1 hr. or 15 min in the freezer. Place on floured board to roll out working from the center out on your dough. Don't handle the dough too much, be very gentle or it will get rubbery. I roll one ball to the size of a 10" pie. Add favorite filling. Roll out top crust or make two one crust pies.
