  1. 1 of 3 Place flour, cornstarch, sugar, cinnamon and salt in the bowl of a food processor. Add butter pieces and pulse 10 times or until butter pieces are about 1/2-inch big. Add ice water 1 tablespoon at a time, then pulse until dough looks ragged and holds together when pinched.
  2. 2 of 3 Turn dough out onto floured work surface and knead for 30 seconds. Form into a 4-inch square; wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 45 minutes.
  3. 3 of 3 Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Place a piece of parchment on a 12 x 17-inch rimmed baking sheet and sprinkle it with flour; set aside. Place dough on floured work surface and sprinkle with flour. Roll with a floured rolling pin to about 12 x 15 inches. Transfer dough to parchment paper on baking pan. Roll up a 1/2-inch border all the way around, pressing edge tightly to adhere to dough.
