3 eggs in milk to equal 1 1/2 cups

Or 1 crust:
1/2 cup lard

dash salt
1 egg in milk to equal 3/8 cup

Process the flour and lard into pea size lumps. Add salt and egg/milk mixture and process until ball forms. Roll out or freeze. If making the 4 crusts, divide into 4 sections and freeze if not needed.
