Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Pulse flour, sugar, and salt in a food processor to combine. Add butter, and process until mixture resembles coarse meal, about 10 seconds. With machine running, add ice water in a slow, steady stream through the feed tube until dough just holds together (no longer than 30 seconds).

  • Divide dough in half, and shape into disks. Wrap each in plastic. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour (or up to 2 days).

my wife Victoria wanted this recipe. however finding it was very time consuming. we are watching wlrn from 12pm on and were looking for the recipes. as an example the food network lists the shows then you can click on the recipes to download them based on the tv schedule. here we cant find the show the network nor the recipes. my wife loves Martha and I love finding these things on the internet for her. please make my job easier you don't want a grumbley husband complaining about marthas website
