Basic Pie Crust
2-2/3 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
3/4 teaspoon sugar
4 ounces (8 tablespoons) chilled butter, cut into pieces
4 ounces (1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons) chilled vegetable shortening, cut until pieces
1/4 to 1/2 cup cold water, as needed

Place the flour, salt and sugar in the bowl of a food processor with a steel blade. Pulse to combine.

Add the chilled butter and shortening; pulse until it is evenly cut in and the mixture resembles coarse cornmeal. Remove to a mixing bowl.

Working quickly, gradually add enough cold water, while tossing and stirring with a fork, until the dough just begins to come together. Divide the dough into 2 even portions, flatten into rounds, wrap in plastic, and chill for a few hours or overnight.

Roll out 1 portion and fit it into a 9-inch pie pan. Crimp edges. Reserve remaining portion for another use. Line shell with foil or parchment paper and fill with dry rice or beans. Blind bake in a preheated 375 degree F oven for 20 minutes. Remove foil and beans before filling.
