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.
