Pate Brisee (Pie Dough)
MyCookbook Recipe Database
MyCookbook Member: email@example.com
Recipe Category: Dessert
Recipe Preparation Level: easy
Makes 1 double-crust or 2 single-crust nine to ten-inch pie
Pressing the dough into a flat round rather than shaping it into a ball allows it to chill faster. This will also make the dough easier to roll out.
2 ½ cups all purpose flour
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp sugar
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, chilled and cut into small pieces
¼ to ½ cup ice water
1. In the bowl of a food processor, combine flour, salt, and sugar. Add butter, and process until the mixture resembles coarse meal (pulse 8 to 10 seconds).
2. While pulsing, add ice water in a slow steady stream through feed tube. Pulse just until dough holds together without being wet or sticky. Do not 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.
3. Divide dough into two equal parts. Flatten each ball into a flat round and wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate and chill at least 1 hour. Dough may be stored, frozen up to one month.
If mixing by hand, follow same procedure, being careful not to overwork the dough.
