  1. Place butter and lard in freezer for 15 minutes. When ready to use, remove and cut both into small pieces.

    In the bowl of a food processor, combine flour and salt by pulsing 3 to 4 times. Add butter and pulse 5 to 6 times until texture looks mealy. Add lard and pulse another 3 to 4 times. Remove lid of food processor and spritz surface of mixture thoroughly with water, (or just use 4-5 tablespoons of ice water). Replace lid and pulse 5 times. Add more water and pulse again until mixture holds together when squeezed.

    Place mixture in large zip-top bag, squeeze together until it forms a ball, and then press into a rounded disk and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
