How to make it
- Single Crust Pastry
- Makes pastry for one 10-inch single crust pie
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1/3cup cold butter, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
- 1/3 cup shortening, cut into 1/2 inch pieces and frozen for 15 minutes
- 1/4 cup cold water
- Make sure all the ingredients are as cold as possible.
- Using a food processor or a pastry cutter and a large bowl, combine the flour, salt, butter and shortening. Process or cut in until the mixture resembles coarse meal and begins to clump together.
- Sprinkle with the water, let rest for 30 seconds and then either process very briefly or cut with about 15 strokes of the pastry cutter, just until the dough begins to stick together and come away from the sides of the bowl.
- Turn onto a lightly floured work surface and press together to form a disk. Wrap in plastic and chill for at least 20 minutes.
- Allow the dough to warm slightly at room temperature if it is too hard to roll.
- On a lightly floured board, roll the disk to a thickness of 1/8 inch .
- Cut a circle about 1 1/2 inches larger than the pie plate. Transfer the pastry to the plate by folding it in half or by rolling it onto the rolling pin. Turn the pastry under, leaving an edge that hangs about 1/2inch over the plate. Flute the edges. Use as directed in recipe.
