Ingredients:  
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 tsp salt
3 tbsp sugar
12 tbsp cold butter, cut into cubes
4 tbsp vegetable shortening, cut into cubes
1/4 cup to 1/2 cup ice cold water

Directions:
Directions:
1. Combine the flour, salt, sugar, butter and shortening in the bowl of your food processor and pulse several times until the mixture resembles coarse sand..
2. Add 1/4 cup of cold water to the food processor and mix until the mixture starts to form a dough. Add more water if needed. Most of the time a 1/4 cup plus 2 tbsp works for me.
3. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and quickly shape into a large ball. Divide the ball in two, and shape each dough ball into a small flat disc, about the size of your palm. *Work quickly with the dough, as warm hands will melt the butter and not give as flakey of a crust as desired.
4. Wrap the discs with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes and then use. *If using the dough at a later time, let it sit on the counter for at least 10-15 minutes before rolling out on a lightly floured surface.
