  • 2 cups all-purpose flour plus more to dust
  • 1 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 7 oz cold unsalted butter cut into cubes
  • 4 tbsp ice cold water


  • In a food processor, pulse the flour, sugar, and salt a few times to combine.
  • Add the cold diced butter and pulse the mixture until it resembles a coarse meal (pea-size pieces with bigger pieces of butter it’s ok). The mixture should be powdery and dry.
  • Add the ice-cold water and pulse a few more times. The dough should stick together in between your fingers, if not add a tablespoon of water until it does.
  • Transfer the dough to a clean work surface and form 2 equal size pieces of dough. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for one hour until you are ready to use.
