FLAKY PASTRY DOUGH



Flaky Pastry Dough image

Categories     dessert

Time 50m

Yield 2.3 pounds dough (enough for two 9-inch double-crust pies)

Number Of Ingredients 5

1 pound all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 pound (4 sticks) unsalted butter, cut into 2-tablespoon pieces, at slightly cooler than room temperature
6 ounces ice-cold water
1 teaspoon lemon juice

Steps:

  • Add the flour and salt to a large bowl and stir to combine. Add the butter and toss to combine. With your fingers, begin to "smush" the butter into flat pieces. Continue smushing until all the butter is flattened but none of the pieces are larger than a quarter. The flour will look like coarse cornmeal.
  • Add the water, quickly folding it in with a wooden spoon to distribute the moisture. (Do not stir vigorously--the dough should appear shaggy.) Use your hands to break up any large clumps of moisture. Then use your knuckles or a palm to smear the dough up the sides of the bowl (a technique known as fraisage). This distributes the butter over a larger surface to achieve larger flakes and compact the dough. Once you've gone around the bowl one time, fold the dough over itself a few times to pick up any dry bits from the bottom. Gently press the dough into a disk. (Note: The dough should remain very cool to the touch throughout the process. If it approaches room temperature, refrigerate it for 5 to 10 minutes to chill.)
  • Transfer the dough to a lightly floured work surface and roll out to a 10-by-12-inch rectangle. Perform a letter fold by folding one of the short ends towards the middle and the other short end over the first, like folding a business letter.
  • Turn the dough 90 degrees, so the long side faces you, and perform a second letter fold. Turn the dough 90 degrees again; perform a third letter fold.
  • If the dough still feels cool, it can be used immediately. Otherwise, wrap it in plastic wrap and chill for at least 20 minutes. The dough can be refrigerated for up to 1 week or frozen for up to 1 month.

BUTTERCRUST PASTRY DOUGH



Buttercrust Pastry Dough image

I used a food processor for this tender, flaky pastry dough as it makes it so much easier to achieve the gorgeous 'breadcrumb' texture as you add the ice water. If you use the dough for a savory recipe, I'd cut down the sugar a bit, but not omit it entirely. The most important thing to remember is to use frozen butter and ice cold water.

Time 1h15m

Yield 6

Number Of Ingredients 5

2 cups all-purpose flour, divided
½ cup butter, cut into 12 cubes, frozen
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons ice water

Steps:

  • Place blade insert into bowl of food processor. Add 1 cup flour. Sprinkle frozen butter cubes over flour. Add remaining 1 cup flour, sugar, and salt. Cover. Pulse in short bursts on and off until butter is broken into small pieces and looks crumbly, about 1 minute. Drizzle in ice water. Pulse with longer pulses, on and off, until mixture turns pale yellow and looks like crumbs, about 10 to 12 seconds. Scrape down sides with spatula. Pulse once or twice more.
  • Transfer mixture onto a work surface. Bring pieces together to form a tight round ball of dough. Flatten slightly and wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate at least 1 hour or overnight before rolling out.

EASY, NO FAIL PASTRY CRUST



Easy, No Fail Pastry Crust image

I never made pies before this recipe because it never came out right, and I always had a hard time rolling it out. I was watching Martha Stewart one day, and decided to try her recipe with a few of her tricks and it works!! I haven't had any trouble since.

Time 1h15m

Yield 2 9 inch pie crusts

Number Of Ingredients 5

2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
16 tablespoons unsalted butter (really cold or frozen)
1/4-1/2 cup ice water

Steps:

  • Measure the flour, salt, and sugar into a food processor.
  • Add a few 1 Tbsp butter piece at a time, and pulse until coarsely chopped.
  • Repeat until all butter has been incorporated. Don't pulse too much in between.
  • Add a couple of tablespoons of water and pulse. Repeat until the dough is just forming little balls, and falls from the sides.
  • Place half the mixture on a sheet of plastic wrap and squish the particles together until you form nice disc. Wrap the disc in the plastic wrap and refrigerate.
  • KEY: Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before rolling out.
  • Repeat with remaining dough.
  • This recipe freezes well, so if you only need one 9in pie crust, you can save the other for next time. Just allow time for it to defrost naturally. Don't put in microwave.
