February 3rd, 2011 § 2 comments

Makes 1 large pie crust or two tart shells

Ingredients

2½ cups flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 sticks unsalted butter, cold and cut into small pieces
2 to 4 tablespoons ice water

Directions

In a large bowl, combine flour, brown sugar and salt. Cut in butter with two forks or a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add ice water (1 tablespoon at a time), mix until dough just comes together. If dough is too dry, add more water, 1 tablespoon at a time. Turn out dough from bowl onto work surface, and knead once or twice to combine. Divide dough in four equal parts. Shape into disks. Wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
