I love this pie dough recipe. It works for me every time.

Yes, indeed. I experimented with my family using lard in one recipe and shortening in the other. They seemed to enjoy the lard pastry more.

You can substitute Shortening for Lard, but in my opinion, using lard is like adding love, it just tastes better :)
