2 Cups  – All purpose flour

1/8 – 1/4 teaspoons. – Salt

2/3 Cups – Cold butter, salted

4-5 Tablespoons – Cold water



1. Combine flour and salt in a large bowl, then cut in the butter using either two knives or a pastry cutter

2. Mix  in water, one tablespoon at a time until the flour/butter mixture is just moistened.

3. Shape the dough into a ball and cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2+ hours. Hint: if you are planning to use this dough for both a top and bottom crust, now is the time to split it in half.  Make two balls, wrap and chill individually.

4. Roll out onto lightly floured surface
