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.
