So I wanted to make a pie, but I don't have a pastry cutter, and cutting the butter and flour together with a fork takes forever, and the butter ends up warming up too much. So I had an idea, what about the food processor? Using the pulse setting ended up saving me time and I came out with a super flaky pie crust. It seriously takes about 10-15 min. That's all! Because of that we have gone a little pie crazy in my house.

1 stick of butter, cut up into 1in chunks, and frozen for 10 min
1 cup of flour sifted
2-8 tablespoons of icewater

Pour the sifted flour into the food processor. Add the frozen butter. Pulse until the mixture looks like fine bread crumbs and no large chunks of butter remain. Add ice water, 1 tablespoon at a time until mixture is moistened. Press the mixture into a ball and refrigerate for at least 10 min. Voila! Pie crust is now ready to be filled and baked!

Whoa. Thanks so much for that! I'm a baking student and I totally screwed up my pie dough on Mon and have my practical exam today and I get to make it again. I really appreciate it!

I've always done what I do. I'm doing what I do, way I've always done and the way I'll always do it.
