Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place the flour, salt, and sugar in the bowl of a food processor, and process for a few seconds to combine. Add the butter, and process until the mixture resembles coarse meal, about 10 seconds. With the machine running, add the ice water in a slow, steady stream, through the feed tube, just until the dough holds together. Do not process for more than 30 seconds.

  • Turn the dough out onto a work surface. Divide in two with one piece slightly larger than the other. Place each half on a sheet of plastic wrap. Flatten, and form two rectangles. Wrap, and refrigerate at least 1 hour before using.

Not so great. Was just about holding together but lumpish when I put it into the fridge. When I removed, it was a rock. Rolling it out was a nightmare, and then it stuck to the "lightly floured" surface. Argh.

This crust comes out excellent if you follow the directions. So flaky and buttery. I use it for the cherry slab pie recipe but can be used for any pie crust. EXCELLENT!!!
