Pie Crust Recipe
Makes 2 pies or top and bottom of one pie
2 ½ cups Flour
1 tsp Salt
6 TBS Unsalted Butter (chilled)
¾ cup Shortening (chilled)
½ cup Ice Water
Add Flour and Salt into a large bowl.
Add chilled butter and shortening and use a pastry blender or fork to cut them into the flour until you have course crumbles.
Add a tablespoon of ice cold water at a time until dough begins to clump. You might not use all of the water.
Mold into a ball and cut in half.
Ideally – Press each piece into a disc and refrigerate for 2 hours or freeze for 30 minutes.
Lay out parchment paper and flour both sides of your disc and add more parchment. Roll out until flat and even.
Transfer to pie tin and trim edges.
Blind Bake for 8 minutes with edges foiled for Custard pies like pumpkin. Fill with weights or dock.
