Chef John's secret to epic flakiness is frozen butter! To make this awesomely tender crust, flour, frozen butter, more flour, sugar and salt gets pulsed in a food processor until crumbly. Then you add ice cold water and pulse some more until the dough comes together when you press it. Turn it out on a surface such as a baking mat, bring it quickly together into a smooth ball, and chill. This recipe makes enough dough for top and bottom crust on one pie, 4 turnovers, or a crust on an excellent savory pie. What are you waiting for?
