Ingredients

In the bowl of a food processor fitted with blade attachment, pulse together  flour, sugar, and Kosher salt. Add cold butter and shortening, then pulse until small, pea-sized pieces form. Add ice water.

1

Dump the dough out onto a sheet of plastic wrap and roll into a flat disk. Chill. If you leave the dough in the fridge longer, it may need to sit out at room temperature until it is easier to roll out.
