Pasty Pastry for Cornish Miners' Pasties
10 mins (prep 10)

This goes with Cornish Miners' Pasties and makes the most outstanding pastry crust ever! Lard is the preferred "shortening" and closest to the "original" recipe. But regular shortening will work, too. Although butter would make it very rich, I've NEVER used butter in this. The crust is very light and flakey--but sturdy enough to hold the pasty ingredients; turns a beautiful golden-brown when brushed with milk prior to baking. This recipe can also be used for quiches (weighted down with beans) and pies.
