Calories: 1189kcal


  • 10 ounces (284 g) all purpose flour or all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp (g) salt
  • 8 oz (227 g) cold unsalted butter grated
  • 2 oz (57 g) ice water


  • Place the flour and salt into a medium-sized bowl
  • Grate your cold butter directly into the flour mixture
  • Toss the mixture until the butter is coated with flour
  • Add in the water in small amounts and mix with your other hand until the flour is almost all gone. Press the dough together and wrap in plastic wrap to chill at least one hour but overnight is best
  • To use dough, roll out dough between two pieces of parchment paper to 1/8" of an inch. Place into pie dish and press flat against bottom and sides. Trim off the excess, leaving 1/4 of an inch around the outside of the pan to allow for shrinking.
