Dough by Hand
Recently I’ve been making all pie, biscuit, scone, and now galette dough by hand with a fork, pastry blender and my fingers. This is the only way to go. Once you do it a few times and know the look, feel, and texture of the dough you won’t go back to a processor or mixer. I’ve found this is the best way to ensure a light, tender, flaky crust or baked good. Plus, in the end it takes no longer than pulling out a machine and cleaning it after use. It’s also more fun to get your hands messy.
