Day 100 Pie Pastry

Pie Pastry

I have amazed myself by completing 100 days of recipes.

1 2/3 Cups All Purpose Flour
1 1/2 Tablespoons Sugar
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
5 Tablespoons Earth Balance, cold and cut into 1/4 inch pieces
1/4 Cup Very Cold Water

1.  Place flour, sugar and salt in a food processor; pulse to mix.  Add the Earth Balance.  Pulse until mix looks like cornmeal.

2.  Add the water, a little at a time while the machine is running.  The pastry should look like damp, clumpy sand.  You may not need all of the water.  The pastry should hold together easily when pressed between your fingers.

3.  Transfer the dough to a work surface and gather it into a ball. Place the dough on a piece of plastic wrap and flatten to a disk.  Wrap in the plastic wrap and refrigerate for an hour.

4.  The pastry should be ready to roll.  Fits a 9 inch deep dish pie pan or a 11 inch tart pan.

Goes well with Shades of Autumn Pie
