Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
My mother always used this recipe. However, today lard is frowned upon as an ingredient. Therefore, Crisco can be used instead. The baking powder is optional. Dough keeps in refridgerator for about 2 weeks.
This recipe was also used for the numerous apple and lemon meringue pie sales the church had in the 50's and 60's.
