Icelandic Wonder Pastry

Posted on: November 23, 2012

This is the best pie dough – but it will vary in mass, depending on the humidity on the day you make it.


Sift Dry ingredients:

4 cups flour

4 tsp Brown Sugar

1 tsp salt

1 tsp baking powder


Cut in  1 Lb shortening or lard


sprinkle with 1 tbsp vinegar


break 1 medium egg into a measuring cup and add enough milk to make 3/4 of a cup of liquid


pour over the dough and mix well.


the dough should be moist and rolled in wax or parchment paper and chilled in the fridge for at least 2 hours.


it should yield enough for 3 double crust pies or 6 singles


the dough keeps for up to 3 weeks in the fridge


but is not freezable in an uncooked state
