Ingredients

2. When making the crust, the food processor can only handle half the dough at a time, so you will be making two batches. In a 7-cup food processor, combine 2 cups flour, ½ cup powdered sugar, ⅓ cup cornstarch, 1 teaspoon salt and 2 sticks cut butter. Process until mixture start to clump and looks like small crumbs. Place mixture on cookie sheet.
3. Make another batch of dough by combining 2 cups flour, ½ cup powdered sugar, ⅓ cup cornstarch, 1 teaspoon salt and 2 sticks cut butter in food processor. Process until you have a mixture of small crumbs. Add dough to cookie sheet, reserving ¼ cup for garnish.

5. Remove cookie sheet from oven. Reduce temperature to 325 degrees. Begin making toppings (recipes below). Once toppings have been poured over crust, bake for an additional 20 to 25 minutes. Cool completely on a cooling rack before slicing and serving.
