Recipe by Vseward (Chef~V)

The ingredients sound odd, but this does make a great flaky pastry crust for pies.

I used frozen butter and grated it in to the flour. The dough was easy to work with the first day and even easier after being chilled for 24hrs. I used theis to make vegetable turnovers, fruit and cream cheese pastries, and apple pie, and with the last bit of dough I made meat turnovers. They all turned out perfect. Thanks for the recipe.

Directions

  1. Mix flour, sugar and salt with fingers or fork till corse mill.
  2. Combine two mixtures with fingers or fork just until barely moistened. If you over combine you will make it tough and lose flakiness.
  3. If it looks under stirred and falls apart then you're there! Tightly wrap it in plastic wrap (it will continue to combine by itself while wrapped) and chill for half hour.
  4. Flour surfaces before rolling out.
