Versatile Pie Dough

2 1/2 c flour

1/4 c Splenda granulated (obv. you can use regular granulated sugar, am just using up my pantry stuffs :)

1 c margarine/unsalted butter (cold but not solid hard butter. And if using butter, add in 1/2 tsp salt)

5-6 tbsp cold water (ice water is best)

Mix dry ingredients in a bowl

Using an electric mixer with paddle attachment, beat margarine until fluffy then beat in on low speed the dry ingredients until coarse

Add in water and beat until dough is formed

Roll one dough flat and place on pie pan, trim sides. Chill in the fridge while working on filling and the other dough

Roll flat the other dough and using leaf cutter, make cut-outs
