Whenever there is something that I need a recipe for I look in my Julia Child cookbooks. Without fail there is always a recipe with the best explanation of how to make it. Out of all of the cookbooks that I own, hers is the very best. She not only provides recipes, but teaches you techniques and tips along the way. I, along with many others, refer to her cookbooks as The Bible of Cooking. It’s like having your own personal chef instructor in the kitchen with you! Amazing!
As I mentioned yesterday, Little Finch and I made Pastry Dough for our Calzone Wanna-Be’s. This recipe for Pastry Dough is from Julia Child’s “Mastering The Art of French Cooking” Volume I. My little girlie and I had a lot of fun making this!

And there you have it! Once you are ready to use the dough, roll out with rolling pin and use to your hearts desire! This dough was the perfect combination of flakey and moist (sounds oxymoron I know, but it’s true!)
-2c all-purpose flour
-1 1/2 sitcks chilled butter cut into 1/2″ slices
-4Tbs chilled shortening
-A scant half cup of iced water, plus droplets more if needed
Hope you bail on the store bought dough and give this a try!
