- ⅔ cup Lard
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter very cold

Homemade Pie Crust
In a large bowl, combine the flour, salt, and sugar with a fork. Using a pastry cutter or two forks, cut the lard and butter into the dry ingredients until they are pea-size pieces. Fill a glass Pyrex measuring cup with ice cubes and cold water. Pour in ice-cold water a little at a time, use a fork to gently roll the mixture around the bowl to combine. Add more water as needed. Press the dough together with your hands.
Place the pie crust into a large zip-style bag and refrigerate for several hours.
Cut the dough into two equal size pieces and gently roll out with a wooden rolling pin. Place the dough round into the bottom of the cast iron pan. Trim the edges with kitchen shears. Place the pie filling ingredients into the unbaked shell.
Roll out the remaining pie crust and cut evenly into strips with a pastry cutter wheel or small pizza cutter. Lay 5-6 strips horizontally over the pie. Using longer pieces towards the center and shorter pieces near the edge. Roll back every other strip and place a pastry strip down vertically. Fold the pieces back. Continue this process until the pie crust is complete.
Roll under the edges on the crust and gently use your hands to press everything together.
Brush the crust with egg wash and sprinkle with granulated sugar.
Place the pie on a half sheet pan lined with parchment paper. This will help contain the mess. Bake in a preheated 400 degree F oven for 60 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and filling is bubbling. Take out of the oven and let cool on a baking rack. Let cool completely before slicing.
