 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2      cups          all-purpose bleached flour
      1/3  cup           sugar
      1/2  teaspoon      baking powder
      1/4  teaspoon      salt
    8      tablespoons   (1 stick) cold unsalted butter -- cut into 8
    pieces 2      large         eggs
 In a food processor, combine flour, sugar, salt and baking powder in
 bowl fitted with metal blade. Pulse 3 times at 1-second intervals to
 mix. Add butter to work bowl and pulse about 15 times until mixture is
 fine and powdery and resembles coarse ground cornmeal and no large
 pieces remain. Add the eggs and pulse ten times or so, until the dough
 forms a ball. Scatter a teaspoon of flour on the work surface and
 scrape the dough out onto it. Press and knead the dough quickly 3 or 4
 times, until it is smooth and uniform.
 Press the dough into 2 equal disks. Sandwich the disks of dough
 between two pieces of plastic wrap and press into a 6-inch circle.
 Refrigerate the dough until firm, or until you are ready to use it, at
 least 1 hour.
 Yield: 1 (2 crust) pie dough
