Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 1 stick plus 2 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into cubes
  • 1/3 cup ice water

How to make this recipe

  1. In a food processor, pulse the flour with 1 teaspoon of salt and 1/4 teaspoon of pepper. Add the butter and pulse until the mixture resembles coarse meal, with some pea-size pieces of butter still visible. Sprinkle the ice water over the mixture and pulse until the dough just starts to come together; you should still see small pieces of butter. Scrape the dough out onto a work surface, gather up any crumbs and pat the dough into an 8-inch square. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate until well-chilled, about 1 hour or for up to 2 days.
