.Whisk together the eggs and vanilla extract. .Pour into the food processor and pulse for a few seconds until the dough comes together. .Take care not to over mix. If your mix seems dry you can add a tiny bit more egg or milk. (This dough can also be made by hand by rubbing in the butter into the flour)
