In a bowl put 1 lb. of lard and pour 1 cup of boiling water over it. Stir until lard is melted and then cool.

In a separate bowl combine salt, baking powder and flour. Then add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix well. Pour or scoop into a pie pan, cover with plastic wrap/wax paper or in a plastic bag and chill in the refrigerator.
