  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp iodized fine salt
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 3/4 cup cold water


  • 1&1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1&1/4 cups muscovado sugar
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 3 tbsp water


  1. To make the dough, combine flour and salt. Rub in the shortening until you get a breadcrumb texture. Add the cold water 2 tablespoons at a time until you can form a dough that isn’t too tough and isn’t too sticky.
  2. If using a stand mixer with a dough hook attachment, mix for 5 minutes until dough is smooth. If not, on a clean and flat surface, dust with flour and knead dough until smooth. This process will take about 10-15 minutes. Cover and rest for 15 minutes.
