Pulse the flour, cornmeal, sugar, and salt together in a food processor fitted with the blade attachment until combined. Add the butter and pulse until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs, 7 to 10 pulses. It’s okay if there are a few large pieces of butter remaining. Drizzle in 2 tablespoons of the ice water and pulse until dough is crumbly in texture but holds together when squeezed, about 4 pulses. If the mixture is dry, pulse in up to 2 more tablespoons of ice water, 1 tablespoon at a time.\r\n”,”image”:{“id”:”dc4035f93cde48eb31348d1215a4a0bc645e6601″,”width”:1600,”height”:1068,”format”:”JPEG”,”created_by_id”:757,”updated_by_id”:null,”created_at”:”2017-06-21T22:28:32.052-04:00″,”updated_at”:”2017-06-21T22:28:32.052-04:00″,”credit_style”:”external”,”credit_author_id”:757,”credit_name”:”Joe Lingeman”,”credit_url”:”http://www.joelingeman.com”,”credit_email”:””,”credit_custom”:””,”credit_license”:””,”credit_linked_post_id”:null,”focus_x”:null,”focus_y”:null,”filename”:”2017-06-14_kitchn_everyday5093-HTgalette.jpg”,”alt_text”:null,”exclude_from_color_search”:false,”crop”:null,”ancestor”:null,”focus_z”:null}},{“image_id”:”ea2fe5e61344823e96df562613037736389d7104″,”caption”:”4.
