Dooher's Bakery Butter Tarts
Filling (see recipe)
2 C. pastry flour (or all-purpose flour) (divided)
1 t. salt
1/2 C. solid vegetable shortening
1/2 C. lard
2 to 3 t. ice water
Make filling. Set aside.
In bowl, mix 1/4 cup flour, salt, shortening and lard until just creamed. Add remaining 1 3/4 cups flour. Add water, starting with 2 tablespoons and adding more as needed. Mix until all flour is incorporated. Roll out to 1/8-inch thickness and cut into rounds to fit into standard-size muffin pan.
