Food-Processor Pastry

Recipe from

Cooking Light

Ingredients

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons vegetable shortening
3 1/2 tablespoons ice water

Preparation

Place first 3 ingredients in food processor, and pulse 2 to 3 times. Add shortening, and pulse 6 times or until mixture resembles coarse meal. With processor on, slowly add ice water through food chute, processing just until combined (do not form a ball).

Press mixture gently into a 4-inch circle on heavy-duty plastic wrap, and cover with additional plastic wrap. Roll dough, still covered, into an 11-inch circle; chill for 10 minutes or until plastic wrap can be easily removed. Remove 1 sheet of plastic wrap; fit dough into a 9-inch pie plate coated with cooking spray, and remove top sheet of plastic wrap.
