This Pie Crust is really good and really easy. It only makes one 9 inch pie crust, if you want to make more then one pie then double this.

6 tablespoons butter, chilled cut in cubes
2 tablespoons shortening, chilled
1 cup flour, plus extra for rolling dough
1/2 teaspoon salt
5-6 tsp ice water

In the bowl of a food processor, combine flour and salt by pulsing 3 to 4 times. Add butter and pulse 5 to 6 times until texture looks mealy. Add lard and pulse another 3 to 4 times. Remove lid of food processor and add water one tsp at a time pulsing each time until a ball forms. Place the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate it for at least 30 minutes or until ready to use.
