Ingredients:1 lb butter
1 c water
2 lb flour
2 Tbsp salt
Preparation:Boil water & butter together; mix flour & salt; let the water cool a bit, then pour and work it into the flour, until the dough is soft but not sticky. Chill at least 30 min. Shape the dough into boxes (or whatever shape), and let sit before filling.
Notes:Note: this is a classic recipe. I derived mine from a variety of (admittedly late) historic sources, among them Mrs. Beeton's household management book, and Mrs. (not Julia) Child's AMERICAN FRUGAL HOUSEWIFE.

Expansion to serve 130: 30 lb flour, 15 lb butter, 2 qts water, 2 c less 2 T salt
