To begin whisk together 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon of sugar and 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt. You can do this in a mixing bowl, or like I am doing here – your food processor. Cut in 1/2 cup of cold unsalted butter that has been cut into pieces. Use a pastry blender in the bowl. If using the food processor, pulse 3 or 4 times. Sprinkle in 5 tablespoons of ice water. Stir to combine, or pulse the processor until mixed.

Shape the dough into a ball, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for an hour.
