My mother-in-law gave me this recipe. She always used lard and I found it easier to work with than vegetable shortening.

Ingredients

  • 1 ⅓ cups all-purpose flour

  • cup lard

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 1 egg

  • 1 teaspoon vinegar

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour and salt. Use a pastry blender to cut in the lard, until it resembles small peas. Using a fork, lightly stir in the egg and vinegar. If the dough does not stick together enough to pull away from the sides of the bowl, stir in a little cold water, about 1 teaspoon at a time. Form dough into a ball, wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before using.
