2 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup cold unsalted butter cubed
1/2 cup cold vegetable shortening cut into a few pieces
1/2 cup ice water
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, and salt until well combined. Add the cold cubed butter and cold vegetable shortening to the pea-sized crumbs.
Slowly drizzle in one tablespoon of ice water at a time and gently mix it in. Once the dough starts to come together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and pack it into a ball. Cut the dough in half and flatten it into two discs. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least one hour.
