MILK PIE PASTRY

This recipe is so old I don't even remember where I got it.

3 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup firmly packed lard
1/2 cup cold milk

Combine the flour and salt in a large bowl. Cut in the lard until the mixture resembles coarse corn meal. Sprinkle milk evenly over the top while tossing the mixture with a fork. Toss until the mixture holds together. Use about 2/3s of the pastry in the bottom of the pie pan to hold filling. Use the remaining third of the pastry for the top crust.
