Ingredients

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup cold butter cubed
  • 1/2 cup lard cubed
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • Ice water

Method

In bowl, whisk flour with salt. Using pastry blender, cut in butter and lard until in fine crumbs with a few larger pieces.

In liquid measure, whisk egg with vinegar; add enough ice water to make 2/3 cup (150 mL). Drizzle over dry ingredients, stirring briskly with fork to form ragged dough. Press into 2 discs. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate until chilled, about 30 minutes. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)
