Lard Pie Crust is a wonderfully flaky crust that reminds me of the days of eating my Aunt France’s pies at every family occasion. Pies were her specialty and she graciously taught me as a young girl to make her fabulous pie crusts. Now I pass on to you her very simple recipe and hope that you give yourself the time that you need to perfect the crust to your liking. Making Pie Crust is not so much in the recipe as it is in the technique.

In the history of the wreath, the word Wreath comes from the Old English word, Writhen, which means to writhe or twist. The history of the wreath notes that ancient Romans and Greeks used wreaths of evergreens to adorn the head of Olympic athletes, kings and heroes. Soon they began embellishing the wreaths and garlands with precious metals and jewels. This became the first crown. The word crown, or corona, itself means wreath or garland.
