Flaky Pie Dough

Prep time 10 mins
Chill time 2 hrs
Yield 1 9- or 10-inch single-crust pie shell

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 4 tablespoons vegetable shortening, chilled
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

How to Make It

  1. Combine all ingredients in a food processor and pulse several times until mixture resembles coarse meal. With motor running, add 2 Tbsp. ice-cold water and process just until dough forms a ball. Add more water, 1 tsp. at a time, if dough is too dry. Press into a disk, wrap in plastic and refrigerate for at least 2 hours and up to 2 days before using.
