Very flaky, will never go back to another (similar) recipe. However, the reason for only 4 stars is that, in my opinion, this recipe needs at least 1c more flour to start with. It's misleading with the recipe stating 1c. water, however the directions are quite clear. But there still needs to be more flour to begin with, otherwise you risk over-working the dough. My recommendation is to keep the liquids as per the instructions (1 cup total)but increase the flour at the start.
It's a nice, soft-ish, workable dough. I got 6-9"shells out of it. I used shortening (Fluffo or Crisco) as I never have lard in the fridge but I always have the shortening in my pantry. Perfect with the additional flour. My go-to recipe here on out.
