My favourite pastry is made from the recipe on the Tenderflake Lard box. It has no fancy ingredients and guess what! It is tender and flaky.  Truth in advertising. I have done a video of me making it.

Tenderflake Lard Pastry

Tenderflake Lard Pastry


  • 1.4 litre (5 1/2 cup) all purpose flour
  • 10 ml (2 teaspoons) salt
  • 454 grams (1 pound) Tenderflake Lard
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • 15 ml (1 tablespoon) vinegar
  • 225 ml (7/8 cup) ice water


  1. Mix salt and flour together.
  2. Cut lard into flour with a pastry blender until the size of peas.
  3. Mix vinegar and egg in a 1 cup measure. Fill the measure with ice water and mix.
  4. Stir in just enough water mixture to bring the dough together yet be a little crumbly.
  5. Make into 3 disks (each disk will make two 9 inch single pie crusts)
  6. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight. The dough can be stored for a few days in the fridge.
