Do I need to make another pie crust?

shpitzlefan | Nov 26, 2008 11:18 AM

I was too lazy to cut the butter into cubes- instead, I tossed the sticks into my food processor whole. Of course, the dough had to mix for much longer than the recipe instructed, and a portion of it (about half) got really soft and creamy. It's chilling now, but should I toss it and start over? Does overmixing guarantee a tough crust?
Thanks for all your help...
