  1. In the bowl of a food processor, combine the flour, salt, and sugar. Add the butter and shortening and pulse for a few seconds until the mixture has a grainy texture. Add the water and pulse until a ball starts to form. Remove the dough. Form a ball with your hands. Dust it with flour and cover with plastic wrap. Let stand for about 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
