Pastry Crust

Whipping up your own pastry crust is really easy! Be brave.

What you need:

  • 3/4 c cold butter
  • 1 1/2 c flour (you can do a mix of white and wheat)
  • Pinch of salt
  • Splash of cold water

Toss the flour and salt together in a bowl. Using your fingers, rub and pinch the butter into the flour until you get little pieces and the mixture looks like little peas. Gradually knead the pieces together in the bowl until you have one ball of dough.

Put the ball of dough on a hard surface dusted with flour and roll out until 1/4″ thick with a rolling pin dusted lightly with flour.
