Basic Pie Dough

~ Makes 1 9-inch crust ~

1 1/4 cups flour

Dash salt

1/2 teaspoon sugar

1/2 cup cold, unsalted butter cut into 1 inch cubes

3/4 tablespoons ice cold water

Add flour, salt, sugar, and butter to bowl of food processor. Using the chopping blade pulse 5.6 times, or until mixture becomes crumbly and course. Do not over pulse. Add 1 tablespoon of water at a time pulsing mixture after each addition until dough starts to slightly stick together but is still a little crumbly. Remember, too much water will make the dough too hard to work. You should be able to see small pieces of butter in the dough.

Remove the dough to a lightly floured surface. Mold mixture into a round disk, wrap in plastic, and place in refrigerator for at least 1 hour to set and chill. After dough has had time to chill, remove from refrigerator and let sit at room temperature for about 10 minutes. Roll dough out onto a lightly floured surface using a rolling pin that has been lightly dusted with flour. Roll out to 1/ 8-inch thickness.
