Yield: 6 servings

Method

Combine the flour, sugar, cardamom and salt in a processor. Pulse to combine. Add butter and pulse to pea size. Sprinkle three tablespoons of water over flour; process three to four seconds until starting to come together (if dough looks very sandy, add water and pulse a few more times until clumping but slightly loose). Turn out onto a large sheet of plastic wrap. Bring wrap up and cover top of dough; press to form seven-inch disk. Chill until cold.
