all-purpose flour

1 cup(s)

powdered sugar

1 Tbsp

table salt

½ tsp

canola oil

3 Tbsp

unsalted butter

1 Tbsp, cold, cut into pieces

apple cider vinegar

1 tsp

Instructions

  1. Combine the flour, confectioners’ sugar, and salt in a medium bowl. With a pastry blender or 2 knives used scissor-fashion, cut in the oil and butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Combine the water and vinegar in a small bowl. Gradually add to the flour mixture, tossing lightly with a fork until the pastry is just moist enough to hold together.
  2. Shape the dough into a disk. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate until chilled, at least 30 minutes or up to 1 day. Yields 1⁄8 of dough per serving.
