2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
8 tablespoons butter, very cold
1/2 cup ice water

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Place the oven rack in the center positon.

Add the flour and salt into the container
of the food processor. Pulse twice to
aerate the mixture. Cut the butter in
small pieces and add to the food processor.
Process until the mixture has the consistency
of coarse cornmeal.

With the machine running, pour the water into
the mixture in a small stream. Process until
the mixture forms a ball. Continue processing
2-minutes longer.

Turn the dough onto a lightly floured board.
Roll the dough into a rectangle about 1/8-inch
thick. Fold the dough over itself to make
two layers. Use a biscuit cutter 1 1/2-inches
in diameter and cut out rounds of dough.
As the dough is cut, arrange the biscuits on
an ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake at 350 degrees F for 25 to 30 minutes or
until golden brown.

Split the biscuits. If they are soft in the
center, return the biscuit halves to the oven
to crisp, briefly.
