Easy Slab Pie Pate Brisee

1 15-by-10-inch pie


  • 3 ¾ cups all-purpose flour

  • 2 ½ teaspoons coarse salt

  • 1 ½ teaspoons sugar

  • 1 ½ cups (3 sticks) unsalted butter, cold, cut into small pieces

  • ½ cup ice water, plus more if needed


  1. Place flour, salt, and sugar in the bowl of a food processor; pulse for a few seconds to combine. Add butter; pulse until mixture resembles coarse crumbs, about 10 seconds.

  2. With machine running, pour ice water through feed tube in a slow, steady stream, until dough just holds together when squeezed. If needed, add more ice water 1 tablespoon at a time. Do not process for more than 30 seconds.

  3. Turn out dough onto a clean work surface. Divide into two pieces, one slightly larger than the other. Form into flattened rectangles. Wrap each in plastic, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or up to overnight.
