This is not bad, but there are a couple of mechanical issues with this recipe as written. I had to add more lard, there just wasn't enough for all the flour. I used 1/2 cup lard, which is still less than the general pie-making guideline and half fat to flour ratio. I even added more than 1 tsp vinegar and needed more than 1 tbsp water. Also, I think the egg would be easier to mix in if it were pre-beaten. The recipe sounded like it wanted the egg as in added into the flour mixture and by doing this it wasn't as easy to bring together and the yolk was hard to distribute it evenly. I do agree with other reviewers that this was super easy to roll out, and I have no complaints about the taste. I think though I'll stick with my favourite recipe for next time - Grandma's Secret Pie Crust on this website. Similar to this one but comes together more easily. Thanks anyway
