Cheddar Pie Dough

The salty cheddar that's laced throughout this dough is the perfect match for sweet apple filling.

  • Yield: Makes two disks (enough for two 11-inch crostatas)

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • Salt
  • 2 sticks cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup ice water
  • 1 cup shredded sharp white cheddar cheese

Directions

  1. Pulse flour and 1 teaspoon salt in a food processor until combined. Add butter, and pulse until mixture resembles coarse meal, about 10 seconds. Drizzle 1/4 cup water evenly over mixture. Pulse until mixture just begins to hold together (dough should not be wet or sticky). If dough is too dry, add more water, 1 tablespoon at a time, and pulse. Add cheese; pulse until combined.

  2. Shape dough into 2 disks, and wrap each in plastic wrap. Refrigerate until chilled, about 30 minutes or up to overnight.

Cook's Note

Dough can be frozen for up to 1 month. Thaw before using.
