DIRECTIONS

  • Insert metal blade into your food processor.
  • Add flour, butter and salt and process until mixture is like coarse meal; it takes about 8 to 10 seconds.
  • Add ice water and pulse, not process, until dough begins to clump together; don't let it form a ball.
  • Remove dough from processor and place in a freezer-size plastic storage zippie bag.
  • Work through the bag to press dough together into a ball; then press into a flat disc.
  • Refrigerate dough for at least 1 hour.
  • When you need it, roll dough out onto a lightly floured surface.
  • Makes enough dough for a single 9 or 10-inch pie shell.
  • Note that this is the recipe provided by Cuisinart; I am not quite as fussy and it always works for me; the key is the ice-cold butter, the ice-cold water, and not letting it process too long.
