  • Serves1 lb pie dough


    • 1 3/4 cups (8 ounces) all purpose flour
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1 1/2 sticks (6 ounces) unsalted butter, cold, cut into 8 pieces
    • 1/3 cup ice water


Combine the flour, salt and cold butter in the bowl of a food processor fitted with the metal blade. Blend the dough by pulsing 10 times. The butter should stay in visible pea-sized pieces. Add the cold water and pulse a few times to moisten the dough. It will not come together in a ball.

Dump the flour mixture into a large bowl. Gather the crumbly dough up into a ball and wrap it in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least one hour before rolling.
