- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for work surface
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1 cup (2 sticks) chilled unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
- 1/4 to 1/2 cup ice water
Place flour, salt, and sugar in a food processor; pulse a few times to combine. Add butter; process until the mixture resembles coarse meal, about 10 seconds. With machine running, add ice water a few tablespoons at a time through the feed tube, just until dough holds together. Do not process more than 30 seconds.
Turn out dough onto a floured work surface. Divide in half, and flatten to form disks. Wrap each in plastic; refrigerate at least 1 hour or overnight.
