Use this pie dough to make our Caramelized Apple Tart.


  • 1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon sugar

  • ½ cup (1 stick) cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces.


  1. In a food processor, pulse flour, salt, and sugar several times to combine. Add butter.

  2. Pulse until mixture resembles coarse meal, with a few pea-size pieces remaining.

  3. Add 2 tablespoons ice water; pulse until dough is crumbly but holds together when squeezed (if needed, add up to 2 more tablespoons ice water, 1 tablespoon at a time). Do not overmix.

  4. Turn out onto a floured work surface; knead once or twice, until dough comes together. Flatten dough into a disk; wrap in plastic, and refrigerate at least 1 hour.
