Pâte Brisée - Pie Dough
בצק פריך

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon sugar

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, chilled and cut into small pieces

  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup ice water

 

  • In the bowl of a food processor, combine flour, salt, and sugar. Add butter, and process until the mixture resembles coarse meal, 8 to 10 seconds.

  • With machine running, add ice water in a slow, steady stream through feed tube. Pulse until dough holds together without being wet or sticky; be careful not to process more than 30 seconds. To test, squeeze a small amount together: If it is crumbly, add more ice water, 1 tablespoon at a time.

  • Divide dough into two equal balls. Flatten each ball into a disc and wrap in plastic. Transfer to the refrigerator and chill at least 1 hour. Dough may be stored, frozen, up to 1 month.
