Pinch dough with finger; if dough is floury and dry and does not hold together, add 1 to 2 tablespoons ice water and process until dough forms large clumps and no dried flour remains, 3 to 5 one second pulses.
  3. Turn dough onto floured counter. Divide dough into two balls and flatten each ball into 4 inch disk; wrap each disc in plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm but not hard, one or two hours, before rolling out
  4. If preparing the pastry in a warm kitchen, refrigerate all of the ingredients for 30 minutes before preparing the recipe to help keep the dough cool during preparation.
