  1. Whisk together first 3 ingredients. Cut in butter with a pastry blender, leaving it in pea-size bits (larger than for a typical piecrust). Stir in sour cream. (Dough will not be cohesive.) Turn onto a floured work surface, and knead gently.

  2. Pat into a square, and roll into an 8- x 10-inch rectangle. Dust both sides of dough with flour, fold in thirds (like a business letter), and flip dough over. Turn it 90°, and repeat process. Chill 30 minutes.

  3. Other uses for Faux Puff Pastry:

  4. Line mini-muffin pans with pastry, fill with quiche ingredients, and bake for appetizers.

  5. Follow same technique as above, but fill with jam or preserves for fruit tartlets.

  6. Fill 3-inch triangles of pastry with 2 teaspoons of seasoned, cooked ground meat; fold over, pinch closed, and bake.

  7. Roll triangles into crescent shapes for flaky dinner rolls. Add a little ham or cheese into wide end of triangle before rolling it up.

  8. Roll into a circle and place on top of chicken stew before baking for chicken pot pie.
