- 1 c. butter, cold and cubed
- 3 c. flour
- 7-8 tablespoons ice water or chilled liquor
In a food processor, pulse together the flour and butter until the mixture resembles coarse meal.
Add in sugar and pulse once more. Begin adding water/liquor 1 Tbsp at a time until 5 Tbsp have been added, pulsing as you go. Now add the water/liquor about 1 tsp at a time, stopping when the mixture just comes together. Turn out onto plastic wrap and form into a disc. Chill to firm, about 15 minutes.
