  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup vegetable shortening
  • 12 Tbsp cold butter, cut into small cubes
  • 1/4 cup vodka

Instructions

In a large bowl combine flour, sugar, and salt. Cut in vegetable shortening and butter with a pastry blender until butter is in the size of peas.

Sprinkle vodka and water over the flour mixture and press together with hands until a dough forms. Evenly divide in two and shape into rounds. Cover in plastic wrap and chill until firm, about 1 hour.

This pie crust can be frozen up to two months.

To par-bake, heat oven to 400 and fill pie crust with pie weights. Cook until golden brown, about 10 minutes.
