Ingredients

  • 2

    cup(s) all-purpose flour

  • 2

    tablespoon(s) granulated sugar

  • 1

    teaspoon(s) kosher salt

  • 6

    tablespoon(s) (3/4 stick) unsalted butter, cut into small pieces

  • 6

    tablespoon(s) vegetable shortening, chilled, cut into small pieces

  • 4

    tablespoon(s) (or up to 8 tablespoons) ice water

Directions

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, and salt. Using your fingers or a pastry cutter, work the butter and shortening into the flour until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle with 4 tablespoons ice water, 1 tablespoon at a time, until the dough is crumbly but holds together when squeezed (if necessary, add additional ice water, 1 teaspoon at a time). Divide the dough in half. Transfer each piece to a piece of plastic wrap and shape into a 1-inch-thick disk. Wrap tightly and refrigerate until firm, at least 1 hour and up to 2 days.
