Ingredients

  • 11 1/4

    ounces all-purpose flour

  • 1

    tablespoon sugar

  • 1/2

    teaspoon salt

  • 1/4

    pound cold unsalted butter, cut into 1/2 inch pieces

  • 2

    teaspoons fresh lemon juice

Directions

Put the flour, sugar and salt in a food processor. Pulse briefly to combine. Add the butter and shortening, pulse just until coarse crumbs form, about 30 seconds. Add the lemon juice and ice water.
