    total time: 40 mins
  • yield: Makes enough for one 8-inch pie




  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting

  • 14 tablespoons unsalted butter, chilled, cut into small pieces
  • 1 large egg, plus 1 large egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

  1. Step 1

    Pulse flour, sugar, and salt in a food processor until just combined. Add butter; pulse until mixture resembles coarse meal. Whisk together egg, yolk, vanilla, and zest in a bowl; add to flour mixture and process just until dough comes together.

    Turn out onto a floured work surface; knead to form a ball. Divide into two-thirds and one-third. Gently press into flat disks. Wrap each in plastic; chill at least 30 minutes and up to overnight.
