Flaky, buttery and in 10 minutes. Homemade pie crust is excellent over store-bought!
In a food processor or standing mixer equipped with cookie paddles mix the ingredients. Process/mix on high speed until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Divide dough into two balls, and chill for 2 hours. Use for your favorite recipe. (See notes!)
See the video on how quickly crumbs come together in a food processor!
The most important thing in getting a flaky pie crust and not a tough, rubbery pie crust when adding the water, and bringing those buttery crumbs together in a mass is to mix as little as possible. Pulse the mixer or food processor for no more than 2-3 seconds at a time, until the dough is coming together just enough for you to squeeze it together the rest of the way with your fingers into a ball.
