Homemade Organic Basic Pastry Mix

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • 6 cups organic unbleached white flour
  • 1-1/2 cups organic pasture butter, home rendered lard, or a combination of the two
  • 1 Tbsp. Real Salt

Here’s How I do it:

  1. Pour the flour and salt into a large mixing bowl; Whisk until well combined.
  2. Cut the flour mixture with the fat until it resembles small peas.
  3. This mixture may be stored at room temperature; However, storing it in the refrigerator cuts time in making the pastry dough.  If one plans on keeping this mixture longer than 1 month, keep the mixture in the freezer.

To  make one pastry crust:

  1. Mix 1-1/2 cups of Homemade Organic Basic Pastry Mix with 3-4 tablespoons of cold unchlorinated and unfluoridated water, adding one tablespoon of water at a time.

To make two pastry crusts (or enough for one crust and a lattice top):

  1. Mix 3 cups of Homemade Organic Basic Pastry Mix with 5-7 tablespoons of cold unchlorinated and unfluoridated water, adding one tablespoon of water at a time.
