  • 1.   Place the flour, sugar (if you want a sweet crust), and salt in a bowl. Create a well in the center of the mixture.
  • 2.   Place the butter in the center and quickly knead these ingredients together, adding cold water.
  • 3.   Gather the dough into a ball, even if there are still some pieces of butter that haven't been fully incorporated. Avoid overworking the dough to prevent it from becoming too elastic.
  • 4.   Lightly flatten the dough and wrap it in plastic wrap. Refrigerate the dough for at least 1 hour.
  • 5.   Dust the dough with flour, then roll it out on a lightly floured surface to the desired thickness, depending on its intended use.

Notes & Suggestions

  • I like to prepare several crusts and freeze them so that I always have one ready to use and save time. They can be kept in the freezer for 2-3 months.
    Divide your dough into several portions and shape them into rectangular patties of even thickness. Wrap them in plastic wrap before placing them in the freezer. This way, the thawing process will be more even and the dough patties will be ready to roll out.
