Ice water 3/4 Cup (12 tbs) (125

Directions

MAKING

1. In food processor, place the flour, sugar, salt, and frozen cubed butter. Pulse the mixture just until the butter & flour look like fine bread crumbs.

2. Turn the processor to on, and slowly drizzle in the ice water until a ball of dough starts to appear in the mixer bowl. Do not overwork the dough.

3. On the counter-top, transfer the mixture and form into a ball.

4. Divide the dough in half, and wrap each with plastic. Refrigerate at least one hour before rolling out.

SERVING

5. Place rolled dough in a pie plate, fill with your favorite filling, bake and serve.

TIPS

Roll out the dough, turning ¼ turn between every roll and place in a 9 ½- 10-inch deep dish pie plate.

Tuck the extra under and pinch the edges to make it look great. Pop in refrigerator until you make the filling.
