Best Ginger-ale PIE douGH

I'm finished weed'n the garden for the day and I'm about to make the best pie dough ever, 
come watch

This is not your usual everyday pie dough,
it comes from my mother's note book of "never fail"

Yes, ginger ale pie dough, Grandma's Best

5 cups of flour
pinch of salt
1 pound of lard or shortening ( I use Crisco) Chilled
1 cup of cold ginger ale

It is just as easy as that.  I like a thick pie crust on the bottom and a thinner top.  This makes enough for 5 shells.

Mix flour and salt then cut in shortening and pour in ginger ale. Chill before rolling.  Bake at 375 for 12 to 15 minutes.  Never fail, get a note book and write this out.
