How To Make And Roll Lard Pie Pastry || Le Gourmet TV Recipes



I bet you're looking for a recipe on how to make pie dough and then how to roll it out into a pie plate You're in luck because this is that video! So this is an all lard or pure lard pie dough, if you're looking for an all butter pie dough, I will link to that below or above or beside

This is super easy to make here's what I did: The first thing I do for this recipe is make up the liquid, and that is one egg and I crack that into the bottom of a measuring cup, then I put it in a tablespoon of vinegar, and don't worry it's not gonna taste like vinegar the acid just makes this pie crust really soft Then I put in enough cold water to bring that up to about half a cup Whisk that together and move on to the dry ingredients The only thing that's changed from from what I made it as a kid is I now use a food processor I put half of the flour in the food processor along with the salt and sugar

This is a lard pie crust which is great for savoury or sweet pies If you're doing a savoury pie don't put in the sugar, if you're doing a sweet pie put in the sugar I pulsed that a few times, take the lid off and then I put in the frozen lard I'm using pure leaf lard that I've chopped into little pieces and frozen to get it really hard Pure leaf lard is really easy to find where we live, I know in some parts of the United States it can be a little bit more difficult

Try to get pure leaf lard if you can I pulsed that a few times just to bring it together so that it looks like little peas coated in flour, and then I put the rest of the flour in and I pulse it again to make it look like smaller little peas coated in flour Now that I've got the lard all broken up I slowly drizzle in the liquid Very slowly While pulsing it, and you're probably not going to use all of the liquid

The biggest setback with using a food processor for this is the tendency is to put in too much liquid Once it sort of comes together roughly into a rough ball stop putting in the liquid, pour the pie dough out on your counter top and then just use your hands to bring it together into a mound Don't touch it too much, you don't want the heat transferred from your hands to melt the lard Once you've got it together into a ball, cut that ball in half Shape each half into a round disc and then cover those in plastic wrap and stick them into the fridge for about an hour

So for rolling it out again really simple; flour your counter top and your rolling pin, get the dough out of the fridge and cover it both sides in a little bit of flour so it's not sticky Then you take your rolling pin and you start in the centre and you roll towards you Put your rolling pin back in the centre and roll away Then you turn the dough 90 degrees and you repeat that process You don't need to press down really hard, almost no pressure at all

Keep doing that, keep rotating at 90 degrees do it again 90 degrees, don't be afraid to pick up your pie dough and turn it over And make sure that there's enough flour underneath so it's not sticking to your countertop You shouldn't be afraid to pick it up move it, turn it over, it's very resilient You keep doing that until it reaches the size that is for your pie plate My number one mistake over and over and over again is; I roll it out too far, I make it too big

Which isn't really much of a problem it just makes for thinner crust on the bottom Now get your pie plate, fold the pie dough in half, put your pie plate in front of it, pick it up and then unfold it A lot of people tell you to put it around a rolling pin, I don't bother with that I just pick it up It is again like I said very resilient Then you gently lift it up and push it down into the corners, and then because I've rolled it out too big I take the excess and I fold it under

I folded under and then I crimp it with my thumb and forefingers I'm not very artful Now an all lard pie dough is great for sweet and savoury pies this one is is particularly good for meat pies

I really like this, it's what I grew up with but I have to say as I grow older I lean more towards all butter And don't worry if your crust around the top edge isn't perfect I mean you made it at home, it's way better than anything you're gonna buy in a store and the only way to get that perfect top edge is to have a team of food stylists working behind the scenes to make it look that great So take this pie dough and fill it with something wonderful!
