I love to bake but I have never been able to totally "master" a pie crust. Something always goes wrong. We got our hands on a huge bunch of fresh picked farm cherries and I really could just taste a cherry pie - although I feared my usual crust failure. I took a stab at this, I chilled lard, and used a farm fresh egg from one of my lovely chooks. This was the BEST pie our family has ever eaten, at least made by me and not Marie Calendar. :) I would have never thought you could get a crust like this without butter. I was afraid of the vinegar too, but it is magic. I was careful to barely work the dough together, I put the crust back in the fridge for a while before baking my beautiful cherry pie. MMMMMMMMM I can still smell that baking in the oven!! yum. A KEEPER!!
