Flaky Pie Pastry

  • SERVINGS: MAKES ENOUGH FOR ONE 9-INCH DOUBLE CRUST PIE
  • MAKE-AHEAD
  1. 2 cups all-purpose flour
  2. 2 tablespoons sugar
  3. 1 teaspoon salt
  4. 1 1/2 sticks (6 ounces) cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  5. 5 to 6 tablespoons ice water
  1. In a large bowl, mix the flour, sugar and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in 5 tablespoons of the water, until just moistened. If the dough seems dry, stir in the remaining 1 tablespoon of water.
