In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together flour and salt. Grate in the butter and mix it well with a fork or pastry blender until you get little pea sized crumbs. Add the water a little at a time while stirring until a dough ball starts to form then work it a little with your hand. You may want to let it rest for a while (15 minutes) before rolling out. Using a rolling pin, roll out the dough on a floured surface until it's about 1/4 inch thick. Cover the the pie pan with the rolled out dough, leave a little extra dough over the sides to allow for shrinkage. Set aside.

Step 4: Step 2: the Filling
