Easy Pie Crust
from Martha Stewart Living Everyday Food
1.) Mix 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour and 1 tsp. each salt and sugar in a medium size bowl. Cut 2 sticks unsalted butter into pieces. With a pastry blender, cut in butter, working until mixture resembles coarse meal.
2.) Add 4 Tbls. ice water; work with hands until dough comes together. If dough is still crumbly, add more ice water 1 Tbls. at a time (up to 4 more Tbls.). Do not overwork.
3.) Divide dough in half, and flatten halves into disks. Wrap disks separately in plastic; refrigerate at least 1 hour. Then use as needed or these can also be frozen.
