  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 egg yolk
  • 3 to 5 tablespoons ice water

In the food processor with the steel cutting blade, blend together the flour, salt, butter and egg yolk, pulsing on and off, until mixture resembles coarse meal.  Add the ice water, a tablespoon at a time, until a dough forms…do not over mix.  Remove and pat into a disc.  Wrap in plastic wrap and chill for 2 hours.Allow to remain at room temperature until soft and pliable enough to easily roll out.Makes 1 9” crust.
