Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Mix flour and salt together in a large bowl. Cut butter into the flour mixture until it is the consistency of breadcrumbs.

  • 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.

  • 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.
