This recipe is absolute perfection.... Like wonderous. Anyone who has trouble with pie crust, fear no more. Even the most baking challenged individual could make it. I use my hands to mix in the butter, but if you are so inclined you may use a food processor. This is great for my favourite item to bake, mini pies but you will need to double this recipe for most things especially full sized pies that require a lid! (Doubling the recipe makes the perfect 9x9 pie with lattice top btw!)
* 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
* 1/4 teaspoon salt
* 1/2 cup butter, chilled and diced
* 1/4 cup ice water
1. In a large bowl, combine flour and salt. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in water, a tablespoon at a time, until mixture forms a ball. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight.
2. Roll dough out to fit a 9 inch pie plate. Place crust in pie plate. Press the dough evenly into the bottom and sides of the pie plate.
