Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 stick plus 2 tablespoons (5 ounces) cold unsalted butter, cut into tablespoons
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1/4 cup ice water

How to make this recipe

  1. In a food processor, pulse the flour with the salt. Add the butter and pulse until the mixture resembles coarse meal. In a small bowl, whisk the egg yolk with the water. With the machine on, slowly add the egg mixture and process until the dough just comes together.
  2. Turn the dough out onto a work surface and gather it together. Gently knead the dough 3 times, then form it into an 8-inch log or 2 disks. Wrap the dough in plastic and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or overnight.

Make Ahead

The dough can be frozen for up to 1 month.
