Flaky Pie Dough

  • ACTIVE: 10 MIN
  • SERVINGS: Makes enough dough for one 9 1/2-inch deep-dish, double-crust pie
  • FAST
  1. 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  2. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  3. 1 1/2 sticks cold unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch dice
  4. 1/4 cup lard (2 ounces), frozen and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  5. 1/2 cup ice water
