Caraway Pie Dough
|All purpose flour||1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)|
|Caraway seeds||1⁄2 Teaspoon|
|Cold unsalted butter||5 Tablespoon, cut into tablespoons|
|Vegetable shortening||2 Tablespoon, chilled|
|Ice water||2 Tablespoon|
1. In a food processor, combine the flour, salt and caraway seeds. Process for 3 seconds. Add the butter and shortening and process, turning the machine quickly on and off, until the mixture resembles oatmeal.
2. With the machine on, pour in 2 tablespoons of the ice water and process just until the dough begins to mass together; do not overprocess. Add more water if the pastry does not mass together. Gather the dough into a ball and pat into a 6-inch disk. Cover with waxed paper and refrigerate until firm.
