Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  • 2 large egg yolks, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup ice water, plus more if needed

Directions

  1. Pulse flour, sugar, and salt in a food processor to combine. Add butter; process until mixture resembles coarse meal, about 10 seconds. Add yolks; pulse. With machine running, pour ice water in a slow, steady stream through the feed tube until dough holds together, no longer than 20 seconds.

  2. Divide dough in half and shape each into a square; wrap in plastic. Refrigerate at least 1 hour or up to 2 days, or freeze up to 1 month.
