  • 1 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  • Cut butter and cream cheese into small cubes. Freeze for 15 minutes. If you freeze for a longer period of time, you may need to mix it more in the food processor.
  • Mix flour, salt and sugar together in food processor.
  • Add butter and cream cheese.
  • Mix in food processor and count to 10. Shut machine off. If butter is still in large chunks, pulse to get to very tiny pieces.

  • Wrap in plastic. Refrigerate.
  • Bake your pie crust according to directions. Usually 40-60 mins for a pie.
  • Will make a full double crusted pie with 8 servings.
