How to make it

  • Mix flour, salt, and sugar in food processor fitted with regular blade.
  • Scatter butter pieces over dry ingredients, toss to coat, and pulse five one-second intervals.
  • Add shortening and continue cutting in pulses until mixture is pale yellow and the texture of cornmeal, with no butter bits larger than small peas.
  • Turn mixture into bowl and sprinkle with 3 T. water, tossing lightly with rubber spatula.
  • Test whether or not to add more water by pressing against side of bowl, and stop when dough just sticks together. Use as little water as possible.
  • Chill dough in two discs, at least 2 hour.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Roll out bottom crust and fit into pie pan, and chill at least 10 minutes while rolling out top crust.
  • Cut steam holes in top crust and chill at least 10 minutes on a dinner plate.
  • Combine all but butter while crust is chilling and let sit at least 15 minutes. Dot filling with butter bits before setting top crust over it.
  • Fill bottom crust with filling, top with top crust, seal by tucking bottom crust over top crust.
  • Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes, then reduce heat to 350 degrees for at least 45 minutes, or until juices bubble thick and the crust is deep golden brown.
