Hot - Water Pastry
What You Need:
  • 5 cups all-purpose flour
  • ˝ teaspoon salt
  • 10 tablespoons lard
  • 6 tablespoons milk
  • 2 tablespoons water

  • How To Cook:
    1. In a deep bowl, combine the flour and salt. Warm the lard, milk and water in a saucepan over moderate heat, and stir until the lard melts.

    2. Beat the mixture, a few tablespoons at a time, into the flour, and continue to beat until the dough can be gathered into a compact ball.

    3. On a lightly floured surface, knead the dough for 2 or 3 minutes by pressing it down, pushing it forward, and folding it back on itself until it is smooth and elastic.

    4. Again gather it into a ball. Place it in a bowl and drape a dampened kitchen towel over it. Let the dough rest for 30 minutes before using.

        This pastry is traditionally used for veal-and-ham pie and pork pie.
