  • Step 1

    Pie Crust

    8 ounce Unsalted Butter
    1 1/2 cup All Purpose Flour
    1 tbsp Sugar

    cut up the butter and the vegetable shortening into small pieces and put them along with the rest of the pie crust ingredients in the refrigerator for about 30 minute to keep them cold.

  • Step 2

    get all your pie crust ingredients from the fridge and add them all to a food processor except for the water.
    start pulsating the food processor and add a tbsp of the cold water little by little until the mix starts coming together. I used about 6 tbsp of water.
    get some plastic wrapping paper and wrap your crust dough into a ball and put it in the fridge for about 30 min to an hour.
