DIRECTIONS

  • In a large bowl with a pastry blender or two knives, cut lard into flour and salt until particles are the size of small peas.
  • In a small bowl, combine the remaining 1/4 cup flour, the water and the vinegar, whisk until smooth.
  • Pour all at once into lard/flour mixture; stir with a fork just until the ingredients are combined.
  • Divide dough in half, wrap each in plastic wrap and chill a minimum of 2 hours, preferably overnight (I tried skipping this once - don't!).
  • Roll out and bake as your recipe directs.
