Flaky half-and-half double pie crust

Recipe Ingredients for Pie double crust

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup white sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2 1/2 tbsp unsalted butter
5 1/2 tbsp crisco
1/2 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup water

Recipe Directions for Pie double crust

  1. Mix flour, sugar, and salt. Cut butter into chunks and using a fork or pastry cutter, cut into the dry ingredients. The butter can be cut into smaller pieces here. Cut the shortening into chunks and using a fork or pastry cutter, cut it into the dry ingredients. Leave slightly bigger pieces of shortening for a more flaky crust. Combine vanilla and water, and slowly add water to the flour/fats mixture, tossing with a fork. Continue adding water until the mixture becomes wet enough to stick to itself, but isn?t sticky.

  2. Separate into two parts, roll into balls and pat down into discs. Place each disc in its own Ziploc bag and refridgerate for at least 1 hour. (With the larger chunks of shortening, it doesn?t solidify as fast, so it will not need to thaw if left in for several hours.)

  3. When you are ready to make your pie, use a rolling pin to roll out one disc on a sheet of parchment paper, or on a pastry rolling mat. Place the pie pan top down in the center of the rolled circle. Slide one hand under the parchment paper, keep one hand on the pan, and invert. Peel away the parchment paper. Gently lift the overhanging edges of the pastry to let the corners tuck down into the pan. Place in the freezer until ready to fill (this will keep it firm).

  4. The more shortening makes the crust flakier, but using the butter flavour of the shortening kept a nice rich flavour.
