Basic Flaky Single Piecrust

From The Deen Bros. Y'All Come Eat

1 1/4 C all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp salt
7 Tbsp unsalted butter, chilled and cut into small pieces
2 Tbsp shortening
2-3 Tbsp ice water

In a food processor or large bowl, pulse or whisk together the flour and salt. Pulse or cut in the butter and shortening until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Pulse or cut in enough ice water until dough just comes together (it should not be sticky).
Press the dough into a ball; using the palm of your hand, flatten it into a disk. Wrap disk tightly in plastic wrap. Chill for 1 hour or until ready to use.
