Flaky and Tasty Pastry Recipe

Ingredients
<br>- 4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
<br>- 1 teaspoon baking powder
<br>- 1 teaspoon salt
<br>- 4 teaspoons brown sugar
<br>- 1 pound lard
<br>- 1 egg
<br>- 2 tablespoons distilled white vinegar
<br>- 1 cup water
<br><p></p>Directions
<br>step 1: Beat the egg in a measuring cup.  Add the vinegar and enough cold water to make one cup of liquid.
<br>step 2: In a large bowl combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and brown sugar.  Cut the lard up into small cubes, and add to the dry ingredients.  Blend with two knives, or a pastry blender, until the mixture is crumbly.  Add the liquid ingredients, mixing with a knife.  Do not use your hands as it tends to soften the lard too much.  Add additional water, if required, to make a soft ball of dough.  If the weather is warm, refrigerate your dough for 1/2 hour to chill it before rolling.  Warm dough doesn't roll as well, and requires too much flour, which makes it less flaky.
