Savory Pastry Dough
- Active Time 10m
- Total Time 1h 10m
Makes two 9-inch (23-cm) pie shells
The less this dough is worked, the more flaky the final pastry will be.
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 15 tablespoons chilled unsalted butter, cut into pieces
- 5 tablespoons ice water
Stir the flour and salt together in a bowl. Add the butter pieces and, using a pastry blender or a fork, cut in the butter until the mixture looks crumbly and the butter is in pea-sized pieces. Add the ice water and, using a wooden spoon, work in very briefly to form a rough dough. Do not make the dough a smooth, homogeneous ball. Work unincorporated flour into the dough when rolling out.
Wrap the dough and loose flour particles in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour or for up to 1 week before use.
