    dividend's Note:

    This is a good crust for savory tarts or quiches that call for a par-baked crust. I adapted this for the food processor from a recipe in Sara Moulton Cooks at Home.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Cook the bacon in a small skillet over medium heat until crisp and colored. Drain on paper towels until cooled.
    2. 2
      In the work bowl of a food processor, combine the flour, salt, and bacon. Process to combine.
    3. 3
      Add the butter and shortening, and combine using short on/off pulses, until the mixture is roughly the texture of coarse cornmeal.
    4. 4
      Add the water in pulses, 1 tablespoon at a time.
    5. 5
      Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface, form into a ball, and lightly knead a few times by hand. Flatten into a disk, wrap in plastic wrap, and chill for 1 hour.
    6. 6
      Preheat the oven to 375°F.
    7. 7
      Roll the dough out on a lightly floured surface into a 1/8-inch thick circle, and press into a 9 inch tart pan.
    8. 8
      Line the shell with foil, and fill with pie weights (I just use rice). Bake for 20 minutes.
    9. 9
      Remove the foil and bake for 10 minutes more, until light golden.
    10. 10
      Use in any recipe calling for a par baked crust.
