Quiche

My first quiche crust: I don't think all butter (pâté brisée), but to add animal fat. Leaf lard or kidney suet? Different ratios for each?

The subject basically says it all. For what it's worth, James Peterson has all butter. Julia Child and Pepin use animal fat.; Child has 6 oz butter to to 4 tbsp shortening, I forget Pepin's ratio.

The second part of the question is, if I do opt for leaf lard or suet, do the proportions differ for each?
