Directions

  1. To make the crust, mix the flour, sugar, and salt in a medium bowl.
  2. Using a pastry blender, cut in the shortening and butter until the mixture resembles coarse meal.
  3. Stirring with a fork, add just enough of the egg yolk mixture to moisten the dough so it holds together when pinched between the thumb and forefinger.
  4. (You may not need all of the yolk mixture, or you may have to add a bit more water.) Gather up into a thick disk and wrap in waxed paper.
  5. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes, or up to overnight.
