This versatile dough can be used for sweet or savory treats.

PÂTE BRISÉE
INGREDIENTS

2           cups unbleached, all-purpose      flour


1           teaspoon kosher salt


16         tablespoons (2 sticks)
             unsalted butter, cold and cut      into ½-inch cubes


¼           cup ice water

Instructions

1. Insert the chopping blade into the work bowl of the food processor. Add the flour and salt and process on Low for 10 seconds to sift. Add the butter and pulse until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.


2. Pour in water 1 tablespoon at a time and pulse until mixture just forms a dough – you may not need all of the water. Divide dough equally into two pieces and form each into a flat disc; wrap in plastic and
refrigerate until ready to use.


 


NOTE: As long as it is well wrapped, this pastry freezes well for up to 6 months.
