Best Pie Crust Ever!

I used this pie crust a few days ago and I loved it. It was flaky and perfect!!! I had never made my own crust before and I was a little nervous but I was so impressed with the results. Great for all your holiday pies!!

This makes a double crust
 2 1/2 Cups All purpose flour
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 Cup cold unsalted butter
1/2 Cup shortening
1/4 Cup cold water
3 tbsp. sour cream
1 egg

In a bowl, whisk flour with salt. Using a pastry blender or two knives, cut in butter and shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs with a few larger pieces. Set aside

Whisk together cold water, sour cream, and egg. Drizzle over flour mixture, tossing with a fork and adding up to 1 tsp more cold water if needed.

Divide in half and shape into discs. Wrap each and chill for about 30 minutes.
