  1. Mix flour and salt together in a large bowl. Cut butter into the flour mixture until it is the consistency of breadcrumbs.
  2. Lightly beat eggs together in a separate bowl; stir into butter-flour mixture. Add water and mix just until incorporated, using your hands to bring dough together.
  3. Turn dough onto a floured work surface and cut into 4 portions. Refrigerate dough for 15 to 30 minutes before using.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • This is a large amount, but it's delicious pastry, great for meat pot pies or fruit pies. Roll it thinner for a crunchy texture or thicker for that biscuity crust.
  • Substitute margarine for the butter, if desired.
  • Substitute milk for the cold water, if desired.
