  1. Mix flour and salt together in a large bowl. Cut in shortening using 2 forks until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Mix in cold water and egg yolk with a fork until dough comes together.
  2. Dust a flat work surface with flour. Divide dough into 12 equal pieces and roll each piece into a 4 1/2-inch circle with a rolling pin.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • To make empanadas: Top each circle of dough with your favorite filling, fold over, and seal edges with a fork. Cut a small slit in the top. Beat 1 egg yolk with 1 tablespoon water in a small bowl and brush over empanadas. Bake on a lightly greased baking sheet at 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) until golden, 20 to 25 minutes.

very light, flaky dough. perfect results! might add some seasoning to the dough next time.

It's good...kind of like a light, airy biscuit. I cut the recipe in half since it is just me eating it.
