Directions for: Basic Pie Crust


5 ½ cup unbleached all-purpose flour

½ tsp salt

2 cup unsalted butter

1 ¾ cup ice water


1. In a food processor, pulse the flour and salt to combine. Add the butter and pulse a few times until the butter pieces are the size of peas. Add the water. Pulse until the dough just starts to hold together. Add more water if necessary. Remove the dough and shape into 8 discs. Cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

2. Note: If your food processor is too small to hold all the ingredients, use the processor to mix the flour and butter. Transfer to a large mixing bowl and stir in the water with a wooden spoon.
