  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 cup chilled solid vegetable shortening cut into small cubes
  • 1/4 cup chilled vodka
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  1. Whisk flour and salt together in a mixing bowl.
  2. Cut the cold butter and then the shortening into the flour mixture with a knife or pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  3. Sprinkle vodka and water over the top of the mixture. Fold together ingredients until mixture sticks together to form a tacky dough. Divide dough into 2 halves; flatten each half into a disk, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate 1 hour or up to 2 days.
  4. When you are ready to make your pie, remove dough from refrigerator, roll each piece and bake according to your pie directions.
