This is adapted from The Ultimate Cooking Course and Kitchen Encyclopedia. I've changed this, ever so slightly to make it my own. Feel free to leave out the seeds or change the herbs to your liking to complement the ingredients going into the crust. I loved the way this tasted and could eat the crust without any filling! I use a food processor, but feel free to make it as instructed. The categories I selected are based on the crust being filled.

Units: US | Metric
- 1Preheat oven to 200C/400°F.
- 2Sift the flour,salt and garlic powder into a mixing bowl.
- 3Add the parsley and seeds and stir to combine with a fork.
- 4Using a pastry blender (or your fingers) cut in the lard and butter until the mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs.
- 5Sprinkle in the water, 1 tablespoon at a time, tossing lightly with your fingertips or a fork until the dough forms a ball.
- 6Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface.
- 7Place it carefully into a 10-inch quiche dish or loose-bottomed tart pan, easing the pastry in and being careful to to stretch it.
- 8I prefer to leave the excess dough and not trim it until after it's baked to allow for any shrinkage, but that is up to you.
- 9Line the pastry case with greaseproof paper and weigh it down with pastry weights or dried beans.
- 10Bake 10 minutes.
- 11Remove the paper and weights and return to oven.
- 12Bake an additional 5 minutes until the pastry is set and beige in color.
- 13Use the flat side of a palette knife to press down on the edge of the tart pan to remove the excess crust. (This is the part that I eat!).
- 14Remove to cooling rack until ready to fill.
