2 9-inch pie crusts


  • 2 ½ cups unbleached all-purpose flour

  • ¼ cup chilled vodka

  • ¼ cup cold water


  1. Whisk flour and salt together in a mixing bowl.

  2. Cut cold butter and then shortening into flour mixture with a knife or pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

  3. Sprinkle vodka and water over the top of flour mixture; mix ingredients together to form a tacky dough. Divide dough into 2 halves; flatten each half into a disk, wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 1 hour to 2 days.

  4. When you are ready to make your pie, remove dough from the refrigerator and roll out each piece from the middle to the edge. Bake according to the pie recipe directions.
