After the nth time where I could have used to have this online, I am finally putting it online, especially since the site where I first found it is either gone or has removed the recipe.

The original recipe:

2 1/2 c flour + 1/2 c flour
3/4 t salt
3/4 c shortening
6 T butter, in bits but chilled
1/3 c ice water

Sift the flour and salt together, combine in bowl of electric mixer with shortening and butter. Mix water and extra 1/2 c flour together to form a slurry. Add to the flour/fat mix, mix until just combined. Form into a ball, wrap in plastic, flatten into a disk, chill 30 mins.

The adjusted to use a whole stick of butter recipe:

3 1/3 c flour + 2/3 c flour
1 t salt
1 c shortening
1 stick (1/2 c) butter, in bits and chilled
1/2 c -1 T ice water

Sift the flour and salt together, combine in bowl of electric mixer with shortening and butter. Mix water and extra 1/2 c flour together to form a slurry. Add to the flour/fat mix, mix until just combined. Form into a ball, wrap in plastic, flatten into a disk, chill 30 mins.

Some have suggested using half vodka and half water for the pie crust, perhaps some day I will experiment with that.
