  3. Add in butter and pulse 7 times.
  4. In a small bowl whisk together the egg.
  5. With the motor running pour in the egg and let process until the dough forms together into a cohesive ball.
  6. Scrape the dough from the bowl and place in a piece of plastic wrap and form into a disk and wrap tightly.
