Easiest Pie Dough

Prep time 10 mins
Chill time 30 mins
Yield Makes 2 (9-in.) pie crusts
It's ridiculously simple to make and easy to work with--no cracking or tearing--yet with all the buttery, flaky character of a rolled-out pie crust. 

Ingredients

  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 cup cold, cubed unsalted butter

How to Make It

  1. Whirl together flour, sugar, and salt in a food processor. Add butter and pulse into pea-size pieces. Drizzle 2/3 cup very cold water over crumbs and pulse just until moistened.

  2. Turn dough onto a work surface and gather into a ball, turning to combine any dry crumbs.

  3. Divide dough in half, form each into a disk, wrap in plastic wrap, and chill at least 30 minutes.
