Vodka Pie Dough

Don’t worry, the booze cooks off and leaves no taste behind.


2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1/3 cup lard or vegetable shortening

1 tablespoon sugar

1 teaspoon fine salt

1 1/2 sticks (12 tablespoons) cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces

1/4 cup vodka

3 to 4 tablespoons ice-cold water



Vodka Pie Dough 

Pulse the flour, lard, sugar, salt and 4 tablespoons of the butter in a food processor until it has the consistency of a fine meal. Add the remaining 8 tablespoons butter, and pulse until you have pea-sized pieces. Sprinkle the vodka and water over the flour, and pulse until the dough just comes together. Evenly divide the dough between 2 pieces of plastic wrap, and gently pat each into a round. Wrap each round tightly and refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour and up to overnight. The dough can be frozen for up to 2 months. Enjoy!
