I'm going to bake a salted caramel apple pie with lard. Does the lard have to be cold? I've only baked with lard once before and I don't remember liking it but thought I'd give it another try.
Store bought lard is hydrogenated for shelf stability. If you can find rendered leaf lard that is the best. As with any pastry your ingredients should to be well chilled. Are you using a food proc to start the crust?
