      Put flour and salt in the bowl of a food processor and pulse a few times to mix well.
    2. 2
      With the motor OFF, cut in the cold butter and margarine.
    3. 3
      Pulse until the fats are in about 1/4 inch pieces.
    4. 4
      Put the lemon juice OR vinegar and the egg, beaten into a measuring cup and add enough ice water to make 1/2 cup.
    5. 5
      Start your processor and feed water in a slow stream through the tube.
    6. 6
      Watch what your doing as you may not need all the liquid, because as soon as the dough begins to gather together stop the machine.
    7. 7
      The dough does not have to form a ball but it should be soft and silken.
    8. 8
      Turn dough out onto waxed paper, form into two balls, wrap and chill for 30 minutes.

      A nice, buttery pastry and not too heavy. I used it for a pear and apple pie and it was very pleasant. However, in future, I think I would rather use this pastry for a savoury tart or pie. Thank you for a quick and easy recipe :)

      This is a great recipe. I whipped it up in my kitchen-aid. The crust turned out light and flaky. Because of a milk allergy in our home I did have to substitute the butter for margarine. It worked wonderful.
