INGREDIENTS
2 1/2 cup flour, all-purpose
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter, unsalted
7 tablespoon water

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Combine flour, sugar, and salt into the bowl of a food processor and pulse to mix.
  • Make sure your butter is very cold, and slice into pieces.
  • Add the COLD butter to the food processor and pulse until the largest pieces of butter are about the size of a pea.
  • Sprinkle the mixture with 3 tablespoons of ice water and pulse again. Then add more ice water, a tablespoon at a time, pulsing once or twice after each addition until the dough just barely begins to hold together.
  • Empty the crumbly dough mixture from the food processor onto a clean, dry, flat surface. Gather the mixture in a mound, place on a piece of parchment paper and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • Prepare your filling (recipe). Place filling into individual ramekins.
  • Remove dough from fridge and roll out thin.
  • Cut circles for a spider, and use a pizza cutter to cut strips for a mummy.
  • Place dough on top of filling in desired shapes.
  • Bake at 425 degrees for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Eat and enjoy!
