Tammy's Famous Sour Cream Crust

This is a follow-up from the last post. Tammy's pie crust was demanded by all! So here it is. Happy Thanksgiving!

Tammy's Double-crust
Sour cream pastry

2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup cold butter, cubed
1/2 cup cold lard, cubed
1/4 cup ice water
3 tbsp sour cream

In a large bowl, whisk flour with salt. Using pastry blender, cut in butter and lard until in fine crumbs with a few larger pieces.

In a liquid measure, whisk water with sour cream. Drizzle over flour mixture, tossing briskly with fork and adding a little water if necessary, until ragged dough forms.

Divide in half, press into 2 discs. Wrap and refrigerate for about 30 minutes (or up to 3 days, I like to make ahead).
