Easy as Pie....Pastry

 
 
Pie Dough

3 cups flour
1 tsp. salt
1/2 cup cold butter
1/2 cup cold lard (I use Tenderflake)
1 large egg
2 tsp. cold white vinegar
cold water

In a food processor combine flour and salt; cut lard and butter into small half inch cubes and with processor running drop alternately into flour mixture until it resembles fine crumbs with a few larger pieces. In a measuring cup beat egg until foamy; add vinegar and enough ice water to measure 2/3 cup. With processor running add egg mixture all at once. Processing until dough forms a ball. Press into 3 discs. Wrap and chill 15 minutes. Will keep in fridge for 3 days just remove frome fridge and let sit for 15 minutes before rolling. I have also found that this dough freezes well, too.
