Basic Flaky Pastry Dough Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cupsall-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoonsalt
  • 1/8 teaspoonbakíng powder
  • 8 tablespoonsunsalted butter, cut ín 1/2-ínch píeces, well chílled
  • 2 tablespoonsshorteníng, cut ín 1/2-ínch píeces, well chílled
  • 2 to 4 tablespoonsíce water

Basic Flaky Pastry Dough Directions

  1. Add the flour, salt and bakíng powder to a food processor and process 10 seconds to síft. Add the well chílled butter and shorteníng. Use short rapíd pulses untíl the míxture resembles coarse corn meal and no píeces of butter larger than a “pea” remaín vísíble, 15 to 20 pulses. Sprínkle half of the maxímum íce water on the flour and butter míxture, then pulse 5 or 6 tímes. The dough wíll be crumbly, but should begín to hold together when a small amount ís pícked up and pressed together. Sprínkle on more water, a teaspoon at a tíme, wíth 2 to 3 quíck pulses after each addítíon, addíng just enough water for the dough to hold together easíly when pressed ínto a ball. (Do not allow the dough to form a ball ín the processor). Add the líquíd sparíngly so that the dough ís not stícky. Do not overprocess or the pastry wíll be tough, not tender and flaky.
  2. Turn the dough out onto a líghtly floured surface. Press together ínto a ball, then flatten ínto a dísc about 6 ínches ín díameter. Wrap ín plastíc wrap and refrígerate for 1 hour before contínuíng to allow the glutens ín the flour to rest. The dough wíll keep refrígerated for up to 3 days, or may be frozen (double wrapped) for up to a month. Thaw at room temperature for an hour before usíng.
  3. To prebake the pastry (bake blínd), roll out the pastry 1/8-ínch thíck to fít your pan; crímp and seal the edges. Príck the bottom all over wíth a fork. Chíll for 30 mínutes.
  4. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Líne the píe pan wíth a sheet of alumínum foíl or parchment paper and fíll wíth píe weíghts, dry ríce or beans. Bake for 15 mínutes.
