Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups sifted flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 5 tbsp cold butter, cut into 4-6 pieces
  • 4 tbsp chilled (iced) water (approx)

Instructions

  • Place the flour and salt in the food processor bowl. Pulse-chop briefly.
  • Add the butter, and pulse-chop the mixture until the butter looks like small pea sized lumps (or smaller) in the flour.
  • Add the water, ½ tablespoon at a time, and pulse-chop until the mixture has a barely sticky, dough-like texture.
  • Place the mixture into a bowl, and gently bring the dough together with your hands until it’s a firm ball of dough
  • Wrap the dough in plastic wrap, and chill in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour
  • When you roll out the dough, give it 5-10 minutes to soften a bit so it can be more easily rolled out

Notes

You can now roll out the dough, and bake with it.
