SHORT-CRUST PASTRY

6 tablespoons unsalted butter, chilled and cut into 1/4-inch bits
2 tablespoons lard, chilled and cut into 1/4-inch bits
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar
3 to 4 tablespoons ice water

In a large, chilled bowl, combine the butter, lard, flour, salt
and sugar. With your fingertips rub the flour and fat together
until they look like coarse meal. Do not let the mixture become
oily. Pour 3 tablespoons of ice water over the mixture all at
once, toss together lightly, and gather the dough into a ball. If
the dough crumbles, add up to 1 table- spoon more ice water by
drops until the particles adhere. Dust the pastry with a little
flour and wrap it in wax paper.

Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before using.

NOTE: If you are not making a sweet pastry, substitute 1/2 teaspoon
salt for the 1/4 teaspoon salt and the 1 tablespoon sugar in the
recipe above.
