Makes 1 (9-inch) pie crust. This flaky, moist crust has less fat than a typical crust, but no less flavor. For best results, make sure the butter is very cold.
Recipe Ingredient Details:
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons cold butter, cut into pieces
5 - 5 1/2 tablespoons ice water
In a medium bowl, combine flour and salt. Cut in butter with a pastry blender or two knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Mix in water, 1 tablespoon at a time, stirring lightly with fork after each addition until dough is formed.
Pat dough into a smooth round disk. Wrap and refrigerate until ready to use.
