Sweet Short Pastry
2 cups flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup butter, chilled
4 tablespoons shortening, chilled
5 tablespoons ice water
Combine sugar and salt.
Cut the butter and shortening into pieces, and cut into the flour until crumbly.
Mix in vanilla.
Add just enough water to form a ball.
Knead quickly into a smooth ball.
Wrap in plastic wrap, and chill for 1 hour.
When ready to use, roll dough out as you would any crust.
