  • Summary

    For this pie's crumbly crust, Gabrielle Langholtz uses lard rendered from farm-raised pork. For a similarly memorable pie, use leaf lard; it comes from the fat around the pig's kidneys and is famed for yielding flaky baked goods. You can order it from your local butcher.

    Ingredients

    • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for surface
    • 1 tablespoon sugar
    • Coarse salt
    • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into small pieces and frozen
    • 3/4 cup cold rendered leaf lard or regular lard (5 ounces), cut into small pieces
    • 1/4 to 1/2 cup ice water
    • 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons honey (preferably organic wildflower)
    • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
    • 4 large eggs
    • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
    • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
