Creating the Perfect Dough: Begin with the heart of our dish. In a food processor, blend flour and salt until perfectly combined. Add cold, buttery pieces and pulse until they resemble large peas. A mixture of sour cream and ice water brings it all together, resulting in a dough that’s both tender and flaky. After a brief chill, it’s ready to elevate your culinary creation.
