You’ve seen (and oohed and aahed over) flaky biscuits and tender pie crusts. Here’s a little secret to achieving that kind of perfection: a pastry blender. Shaped like a half moon with a set of sharp blades around the edge, a pastry blender makes quick work of dicing cold butter into pea-sized lumps.

This is my favorite pie crust. I have yet to make it right, with all cold ingredients, so if you dont have time to chill the flour etc, it will be fine. I also have never made this in my food processor- just with my good old pastry blender and a bowl. I have used this for both sweet and savory dishes. Work time includes 1 hour chill time (I do not always do this either...)
