Recipe by: Frankie


1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, plus a little extra
1/2 tsp salt
6 TBSP frozen unsalted butter, cut into 1/4 inch cubes
5 TBSP ice cold water


1. Add the flour and salt to a large mixing bowl and stir to combine. Add the cold cubed butter and gently mix until you have a mixture with pea sized crumbs. Slowly pour in 1 TBSP of the ice cold water and gently mix to combine, continue with the remaining ice cold water 1 TBSP at a time until the dough is shaggy but holds together.

2. Lay out a piece of parchment paper and scrape the dough onto the paper. Gently form the dough into a disk about 1 inch thick. Cover the dough with another piece of parchment paper and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

3. Remove the dough from the fridge. Lightly flour a work surface and roll the dough out into a disk roughly 12 inches in diameter. Gently lay the dough disk onto a 9 inch pie dish and gently press down on the bottom and sides to make dough fit snug in the dish. Crimp the edges and trim any excess dough that hangs over. Refrigerate for 30 more minutes before using.
