Pie Crust

I wanna brag again.
I made an apple pie one afternoon with some of the filling I had left over from the day before when I was canning.  It was SO yummy.  So I thought I would share my pie crust recipe.  I got this recipe from my friend's mom.  How did mom's get so smart?  My parents got so much smarter since they have had grandchildren!  I actually enjoy her advice now.  This mix keeps in a cupboard for quite a while if it is cool.
Pie Crust
6cups of flour
1tsp baking powder
1tbsp of sugar
1tsp of salt
2 cups lard (tenderflake box is 2 1/4 cup)
break up lard in to pea size pieces, toss lightly all ingredients together
keep in a container. This will make about 6 pie crust bottoms.
When you are ready to make one pie, put 2 cups of mix into
a bowl. Add enough milk to make proper consistancy. This amount will make a large
bottom and top crust of a pie.
