Source: Martha Stewart Weddings, Fall 2012
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 2 sticks (1 cup) unsalted butter, chilled, and cut into small pieces
- 2 large egg yolks
- 1/4 cup ice water
In the bowl of a food processor, pulse flour and sugar together for a few seconds to combine. Add butter to the flour mixture, and process until mixture resembles coarse meal, about 20 seconds. In a small bowl, lightly beat egg yolks and ice water until combined. With machine running, pour egg mixture in a slow, steady stream through feed tube. Pulse just until dough holds together, no more than 30 seconds.
Divide dough into two balls. Flatten each into a disc and wrap in plastic. Refrigerate at least 1 hour or overnight.
