Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place flour, salt, and sugar in the bowl of a food processor; process to combine. Add butter, and process about 7 seconds, until mixture resembles coarse meal.

  • With machine running, slowly add between 1/2 cup and 3/4 cup ice water through the feed tube, until pastry just beings to hold together.

  • Turn dough out onto a piece of plastic wrap, and pat into a square. Divide dough in half, and wrap each half separately. Chill for at least 1 hour before using.

Cook's Notes

The amount of water required to hold pastry together will vary, depending on humidity. Use as little as necessary.
