Perfectly Easy Pastry

This recipe is from one my go-to cookbooks, The Settlement Cookbook.

It’s a great book for the basics, like this pastry recipe:

1/2 cup shortening or butter, melted

1/4 cup cold water

1 1/2 cups flour

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

Combine all dry ingredients. Mix together shortening and water and add to flour mixture. Stir until you have a smooth dough. Chill before rolling out on a lightly floured surface.

And that’s it, the rest is up to you.
