Smallest size food processor for pie dough?

Now that the holiday baking season is winding down.....

For many years I had an older Cuisinart, not sure what size. The bowl broke on it and I decided to get a new one rather than replace the bowl. Mistake.

I moved up to a 14 cup newer food processor...and it drove me crazy. Beyond being too large for my needs it was a pain to clean. How I miss that original Cuisinart with it's simple bowl design and no nooks and crannies that were hard to clean.

Anyway, I don't use a FP much - for pie dough and other items that require cutting fat into flour and occasionally making pesto or pureeing something. I have a Vitamix so don't need it for liquid needs...

I can't remember if my old one was a 7 cup or a 9 cup. I can't seem to find info on how many cups of flour these can take. Ideally I'd like one just big enough for a two crust pie, but want the smallest that can do that job....?(easy to clean too, though that doesn't seem to exist with any of the new models...)
