Step 1: Making the crust

Step 1: Gather your ingredients.
• 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
• 1/2 tsp salt
• 1/2 tsp sugar
• 1 stick (1/2 cup) cold unsalted butter, cut into pieces
• 2-4 Tbsp ice-cold water

NOTE: For a great crust, make sure to use real butter and ice-cold water, which will result in a flakier crust.

Step 2: Making the crust

Step 2: In a food processor, quickly pulse together flour, salt and sugar. Add butter and pulse until mixture resembles a course meal, with a few pea-size pieces of butter remaining. Sprinkle with 2 Tbsp ice water. Pulse until dough is crumbly but holds together when squeezed. If necessary, add up to 2 Tbsp water, 1 Tbsp at a time. Don’t overmix.

Turn dough out onto a large piece of plastic wrap. Fold plastic over dough; press to shape into a 1-inch-thick disc. Refrigerate until firm, at least 1 hour.

Step 3: On a floured counter, roll dough to a 14-inch round with a floured rolling pin. Wrap dough around rolling pin and unroll over a 9-inch pie pan. Gently fit into bottom and up sides of pie pan without stretching dough.

Trim dough to a 1-inch overhang. Fold under itself to form a rim and press to seal. Using thumb and forefinger, crimp rim of crust, or use a fork to press a decorative crust. Refrigerate until ready to use.
