The very first thing I learned how to cook! This freezes beautifully; no well-equipped home is without a ball of pie dough in the freezer! Guaranteed to roll!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, chilled

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour

  • 3 tablespoons white sugar

  • cup ice water

Directions

  1. Combine flour and sugar into the bowl of an electric mixer. Cut butter into tablespoon pieces; add it to the flour and butter. Use the paddle beater to cut the butter and flour together. Alternatively, this can be done by hand with a pastry blender.

  2. With the mixer on low speed , or while stirring the mixture with a fork, pour in the cold water. When the dough starts to clump, and before it turns into a ball, stop stirring.

  3. Lightly knead dough in the bowl until it forms a ball. Divide dough into two parts. Flatten each part into a disk, and chill for about 30 minutes before rolling.

Cook's Note:

Replace 1/2 cup unsalted butter with 1/2 cup shortening or 1 cup cold unsalted margarine, if desired.
