About this recipe: This is a traditional hot water crust pastry made with lard, perfect for savoury pies. Very forgiving and easy to work with, hot water crust pastry will stand up well to hearty pie fillings.
I made a large chicken and ham salt crust pie using this recipe. It made 18 portions (i tripled the ingredients) See photos. - 24 Apr 2017
Never made this with lard, but has worked very well with both butter and cooking margarine. A little buttery, but makes an excellent treat! - 29 Nov 2015
