Ingredients

1½ cups all-purpose flour
½ cup whole wheat flour
6 Tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese
¼ tsp. baking powder
¼ tsp. salt
4 oz. very cold cream cheese, cut into bits
10 Tbsp. very cold butter, cut into bits
2 to 3 Tbsp. ice water

Directions

  1. In a food processor, combine the all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, Parmesan cheese, baking powder and salt. Add the cream cheese and pulse until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Add the butter and pulse until just barely incorporated.
  2. Add 2 tablespoons of the water and pulse until the dough forms a rough mass on the blades. If needed, add more water, 1 teaspoon at a time. Form into two disks, wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before rolling out.
