Anne's Disappearing Pie

This Thanksgiving staple was made each year by Grandma June when Anne, of Saxelby Cheesemongers at Essex Street Market, was growing up.

Serves 8 | Cook Time 50 Minutes

2 Cups of All Purpose Flour
⅔ Cup of Lard
1 Teaspoon of Salt

1. Whisk flour and salt together in a large bowl. Cut in the lard with a knife until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. 

2. Sprinkle in water, 1 tablespoon at a time, blending gently with a fork until all flour is moistened and dough almost cleans the sides of the bowl. Divide the dough in half and shape flattened rounds. 

3. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

4. Shape, fill with your favorite fruit (Anne likes apple), bake for 40 - 50 minutes, and Enjoy!

Enlist help from your favorite little human for extra fun and new traditions.
