I seem to recall a question some time back about how to make pastry dough
without lard or butter.

I found this in A Good Houswiues treasurie; late 16th C English. Don't know
if it is of interest or not:

To make short paste in Lent

	Take thick Almond milke seething hot, and so wet your flower with it,: and
Sallet oyl fryed, and Saffron, and so mingle your past altogether, and that
will make good paste.

toodles, margaret
