  • Place the egg yolk in a ¼-cup measure (reserve egg white) and add ice water to fill the measure; stir with a fork to break up the egg yolk.
  • Drizzle the liquid over the dry ingredients and then pulse to distribute.
  • Then turn on the processor and run until dough almost forms a ball around the blade.
