Ingredients

8oz. Flour
2oz. Lard
2oz. Butter
½ tsp. Salt
2 tbsp. Water


Place the flour into a bowl.


Cut the lard and butter into ½ inch cubes and rub lightly into flour, lifting the mixture to add air, until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.


Make a well in the middle of the mixture and stir in enough water using a knife, until a soft but not sticky pastry is formed.


Cover tightly and allow to rest in a fridge for 15 - 30 minutes.


Roll out to the required thickness.


At this stage the pastry may be frozen if required.


It should be baked in a preheated oven at between 375°F: to 425°F: depending on thickness and use
