- Cold unsalted butter
- Ice Water
- vegetable shortening
- Combine the flour, sugar, and salt in a medium bowl. Add the butter and shortening and cut in with a pastry blender or 2 forks until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add the vinegar and water 1 tablespoon at a time, stirring with a fork until a loose dough forms. Knead the dough in the bowl 1-2 times so that it comes together then press it into a 4-inch diameter disk. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 1 hour.
- On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to a 12-inch diameter circle. Fit the dough into a 9-inch pie pan, then crimp the edges to form a rim. Prick the bottom of the crust a few times with the tines of a fork. Freeze 20 minutes.
- Preheat the oven to 375Â°F.
- Line the pie crust with a 12-inch sheet of aluminum foil. Fill the crust with pie weights or dried beans. Place in the center of the oven and bake 15 minutes
