lard test 1

lard test 1

yesterday nate’s sister came to visit, so i made some chocolate mousse. i was going to ┬ámake a pie at first, but then was like, ehhhh, do i want to? no…
but then we had some time between supper and dessert, and i thought it would be yummy to have a pie “cookie” with our mousse. i made pie dough with the lard, rolled it out, and cut out rounds that i then baked like you do with the leftover pie crust dough. (if you don’t do this, you are a heathen.)
consensus? mmmm. pie dough made with lard is yummy. it’s better than crisco, flakier than butter, but not quite as tasty as butter. i think next time i’ll do half and half, then it should be delicious.
i also got my ginormous “america’s test kitchen” cookbook in the mail the other day. since my dad has given up on finding his martha stewart cookie cook book, i think i’m going to plug away through the cookie section in the ATK book. that should be fun!
