30 minutes
Serves 1 (9") pie crust
  • 1 1/4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, cold and cut into 1/2" cubes
  • 1/4 to 1/3 cup ice water

Using a food processor with dough blade attachment, add flour and salt. Pulse a couple of times to combine. Add butter and pulse a couple of times until butter resembles lentils. Add 1/4 cup water and pulse a couple of times. Add water by the tablespoon, as needed, until dough mostly comes together.

Transfer dough to a work surface lined with a large piece of plastic wrap. Gather plastic wrap and flatten dough into a disk. Refrigerate until well chilled, about 30 minutes.
