1 Easy pastry on Sat 26 Jul - 22:40


1/2 lb(1cup) shortening
1/4 cup butter
1 tsp salt
3 cup flour
1/2 cup cold water


Cream shortening and butter thoroughly, using electric mixer if desired. Stir salt and flour together; gradually add to shortening mixture, creaming well. Add water and mix thoroughly. Mixture WILL be sticky at first (pastry will keep , if well wrapped, in fridge for 10 days).

Place half of dough on heavily floured pastry board; roll from center outward until 1/8 thick. Cut into tart shells or pie shells. Lift pastry carefully and ease gently into tart pans or pie pan BUT do not stretch. Prick.
