✅Instructions

Pie Crust:
1️⃣ In a large bowl, stir together flour, sugar, and salt. Slice the butter and shortening into small cubes. Use a pastry cutter to cut the butter and shortening into the flour, rocking the pastry cutter back and forth, until the mixture is the texture of a coarse meal or sand.

2️⃣ Slowly pour cold water into the flour mixture (about 1 tablespoon at a time, stirring between additions, until just mixed together. Do not overwork. Use your hands to gently press the dough into a ball. Flatten into a 2-inch disc. Wrap tightly with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before rolling.

3️⃣ Unwrap chilled dough and transfer to a lightly floured surface. Use a rolling pin to roll out into a large 12-inch circle, rolling from the center each time to keep the thickness even. Gently transfer crust to an un-greased pie plate, allowing the crust to hang over the edges of the pie plate. Roll and pinch or crimp the edges of your crust. Use a fork to prick holes into the bottom of the crust. Place parchment paper on top of the pie crust to create a bowl. Fill with pie weights or dried, uncooked beans. This will prevent the pie crust from sliding or bubbling. Bake in a 400 degree F oven for 10 minutes to par bake. Remove from oven and let sit until ready to fill.
