Rich Pie Pastry
|Flour||2 Cup (32 tbs)|
|Butter||2⁄3 Cup (10.67 tbs)|
|Cold water||4 Tablespoon|
Sift flour with salt into a bowl.
Cut butter into flour until in small pieces and well coated.
Then rub in with the fingertips until mixture looks like crumbs.
Make a well in the center and add sugar, if using, egg yolk, and 3 tablespoons water and stir to combine.
Draw flour into mixture in the center quickly with a knife, adding more water if necessary, then press with the fingers to form a smooth dough.
Turn onto a floured board or marble slab and knead lightly until smooth.
Wrap in wax paper, plastic wrap or a plastic bag.
Chill 30 minutes before using.
