DIRECTIONS

  • Whisk together flour, salt and sugar in a large bowl.
  • Rub in butter and shortening with your fingertips until mixture is very coarse, but no pieces larger than a large pea remain.
  • Using a fork, stir in ice water until dough almost comes together into a ball.
  • Press dough into a ball with your hands and wrap in plastic. Chill for at least 30-60 minutes before using.
  • To prebake, preheat oven to 375°F Roll dough out to fit a 9-inch pie pan and trim the crust. Prick the bottom with a fork a few times.
  • Line the inside of the crust with aluminum foil, not covering the edges, and fill with pie weights or about 2 cups of dried beans.
  • Bake for 25 minutes, until very lightly browned.
  • Remove foil and weights and bake for an additional 10 to 15 minutes, until medium brown at the edges.
  • Set aside to cool.
