Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put the flour and salt in a 3 qt bowl, stir to blend.
  2. Scatter butter slices over flour and cut in with a pastry blender until the mixture consists of particles that vary in size from small peas to bread crumbs (you can use a food processor for this step).
  3. Stir in the sour cream with a fork.
  4. The pastry will appear dry because the sour cream is thick and does not disburse easily.
  5. With your hands, manipulate the dough into a ball.
  6. Divide in half, wrap in plastic and refrigerate until cold and firm- at least 4 hours, and up to 3 days or freeze for up to 1 month.
