Empanada Dough

Empanada dough is like basic pastry dough but with the addition of eggs and vinegar. If you don't have a large capacity food processor (like like 14-cup food processor by Cuisinart), you will need to make this in batches.

4 1/2 cups white whole wheat flour
3 teaspoons fine sea salt
1 cup unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch cubes and frozen for 1 hour
2 large eggs, cold
2/3 cup ice water
2 tablespoons white vinegar, cold

large capacity food processor fitted with bottom chopping blade
liquid measuring cup
measuring spoons
liquid measure shot glass
plastic wrap

1. In the food processor combine flour and salt.
2. In a measuring cup, combine water and vinegar. Set aside.
3. Add butter. Pulse until mixture resembles cornmeal.
4. With processor running, slowly add water and vinegar in a steady stream.
5. Turn mixture onto plastic wrap. Wrap tighley and flatten into a disk.
6. Refrigerate for at least one hour.

When do you add the egg?
