  • 12 tablespoons cold unsalted butter cut into small pieces
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/3 cup cold vegetable shortening
  • 8 to 10 tablespoons ice water


  • In a food processor fitted with a steel blade, add the flour, salt, and sugar. Pulse a few times to mix.
  • Add the butter and shortening. Pulse until the butter is about the size of peas.
  • With the machine on low, pour the ice water down the feed tube and pulse until the dough begins to form into a ball.
  • Then, place the dough onto a floured surface and roll into a ball. If you still have some dry flour, just sprinkle a little more water onto it until it combines with the rest of the ball.
  • Cut the dough in half (for a pie with a top and a bottom crust) or leave it whole. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least thirty minutes.
