- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup (2 sticks) chilled unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
- 4 to 6 tablespoons ice water
In a food processor, pulse flour, salt, and sugar until combined. Add butter, and process until mixture resembles coarse meal, 20 seconds.
Pour 4 tablespoons ice water in a steady stream through feed tube, and pulse until dough just holds together; do not process more than 20 seconds. If dough is crumbly, add more ice water, 1 tablespoon at a time.
Divide dough in half. Flatten each half into a disk; wrap in plastic. Refrigerate, at least 1 hour or overnight. Dough may be stored, frozen, up to 1 month.
