One-Hundred-One-Year-Old Pastry Recipe
January 29, 2012

This was a great pastry crust. Did use lard instead of shortening - did they have shortening 101 years ago? WARNING - you will not be using the entire 1 1/2 water! I used my food processor to pulse the fat and flour into crumbs - it really helps to have your fat cold when making any pastry. After assembling the pie I used some of the left over egg / vinegar / water to brush the top crust. It worked out really nicely for chicken pot pie.
