Wonderful! This is so easy in the food processor and perfect for a pie. I did not find this dry at all - I made the full recipe and only needed about 2-3 tablespoons of water to get the dough right. Thanks for posting, this will be made many times in the future.

I love this one! It's quick and easy. A suggestion? Why not try putting ingredients in a large reclosable plastic bag, massage to mix and shape before refrigerating? Would this work-anybody?

I too am pastry challenged. This is a great recipe. I just made mini quiches for my boys and they love them. I did have to make one change (I know there are alot of people complaining lately about changes to recipes but I believe this can only help) I didnt have enough white flour so I used 2 cups wholemeal /2 cups white flour. Thank you for this recipe.

I made a half batch of this and found I needed just under a cup of water to make the dough pull together. It was certainly quick and easy and worked well as a crust for my chicken pot pie, but I did find it wasn't quite as flaky as I would have liked. Just a touch too heavy.
