Though I’m sure my experiments won’t stop here, I had to pause and get something to you since it’s been awhile and the year no longer feels new! I do have a good excuse for my absence here. Just as January began I became an Aunt and any spare time is spent dashing across the East River to Greenpoint to hold the sweet little boy and cooking as much as I can for my sister (you may have seen some baking on instagram).

Make the crust Combine both flours and the salt in a food processor; pulse to combine.
Add the butter and pulse until it breaks down to the size of small peas.
