Probably the best and probably the only made in USA cast out there today.

Guys, especially single guys; if your girlfriend or fiancé tells you she never cooked with cast iron and don’t know how to…. SHE DON’T KNOW HOW TO COOK. Deal with it or ditch her.

I use lard in all my pastry doughs, mixed with butter. It gives a great tasting and flaky crust. I also replace the water with unflavored vodka. The alcohol evaporates faster than water and kind of creates mini explosions in the crust, making it even flakier.
