  • 5 teaspoons cold water

  • Place flour in a large bowl. Sprinkle in the chopped butter; rub butter into the flour until it resembles bread crumbs. Stir in the grated cheese. Sprinkle water over the flour mixture, a teaspoon at a time, stirring lightly with a fork. Add just enough water to allow the dough to form a ball and cleanly leave the sides of the bowl.
  • Wrap the dough in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  • Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Roll out dough, and place in a 9 inch pie/quiche pan. Use a fork to prick holes over the bottom of the pastry.
  • Bake crust in preheated oven for 10 minutes before filling.

    • This crust comes out a bit too small, no room to make a fluted or raised edge. Also, as written I only needed less than 3 tsp of water to encourage the dough ball.
