Simple Food Processor Pie Pastry Dough Recipes

This is a quick and easy pastry, but it is important to process the ingredients as little as possible

Makes one 9 inch 2 crust pie

  • 1 cups unbleached, all purpose flour

  • teaspoons salt

  • cup less 1 tablespoon vegetable shortening, very cold or frozen, cut into 8 pieces

  • 1 tablespoon butter, frozen

  • 6 to 8 tablespoons ice water

  • 1 teaspoons lemon juice, iced

  1. Place the flour and salt in a food processor. Pulse to mix well. Remove the cover and arrange the shortening and butter evenly in the flour mixture.

  2. Replace the cover and pulse once or twice until the shortening and flour resemble very coarse meal.

  3. Remove the cover and sprinkle 6 tablespoons of the ice water and the lemon juice over the flour mixture.

  4. Replace the cover and process several seconds, just until the mixture begins to form a ball. If it appears too dry, add the remaining ice water, 1 tablespoon at a time. Do not over process.

  5. Once it begins tot form a ball, remove the dough from the processor and place it on a lightly floured work surface. Form it into 2 rounds, flatten slightly and chill at least 1 hour. Roll out on a lightly floured work surface and proceed with the simple cooking recipe.
