Position rack in center of oven. Preheat to 400°F. Whisk flour and salt together in a bowl or process the mixture for 10 seconds in a food processor. Add butter; mash with back of fork or process until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Drizzle 2-3 tbsp cream over the top and stir or process till crumbs look damp and hold together when pinched.
Those with an aversion to pie pastry, rejoice! This recipe will guarantee you a delicious and EASY pie crust without requiring you to artfully roll out a carefully measured concoction of lard, butter, and flour, producing just the right texture through the production of gluten. In pat-in-the-pan crusts, no gluten has the chance to develop, so you'll end up with a crumbly, rather than flaky, crust. Originally from the Joy of Cooking.
