Ingredients

  • 1

    cup flour

  • 1

    tsp fine sea salt

  • 2/3

    cup cold unsalted butter, diced (10-11 TBS)

  • 4-6

    TBS ice-cold water

Directions

1. Place flour and salt in a food processor. Add the butter and mix for about 10 seconds, or until the mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Tip into a mixing bowl. 2. Add 4 TBS of water and stir the mixture with a butter knife until the dough just comes together. If it seems too dry, add another 1-2 TBS of water. Try not to make the dough too wet, as it results in a crumbly pastry. 3. Lightly knead the dough into a smooth ball, wrap in plastic wrap, and chill for at least 30 minutes before using. Makes 2 cups (16 oz) of dough. Entire recipe = 36 Weight Watchers points.
