Instructions Checklist
  • In a food processor, pulse flour and salt to combine. Add cold butter and pulse until mixture resembles coarse meal, with a few pea-size pieces of butter remaining. Sprinkle with ice water. Pulse until dough is crumbly but holds together when squeezed (if necessary, add up to 3 tablespoons more water, 1 tablespoon at a time). Do not overmix. Form dough into a 1-inch-thick disk, wrap tightly in plastic, and refrigerate until firm, at least 1 hour (or up to 3 days).

This was by far the worst pastry recipe i have ever used. It was so crumbly that i couldn't even roll it onto the rolling pin to transfer it to the pie pan. I ended up having to but it in like a puzzle good taste but horrible to work with.

Will not make again, too salty and didn't hold up well for rolling.

Was hoping that this simple, easy, short step recipe would work like a dream. Seeing as how there were so few steps, so few ingredients, and so little description I thought that it would be a relatively simple thing to get out some pastry dough to start working on some really cool folding methods a friend wanted to show me. End result? Dough that had the cohesiveness of ancient parchment and broke apart at the slightest touch. Do not use this recipe for anything other than ... trash.

It wasn't flaky like I was hoping it would be. Good taste, stupid texture.
