The most simple, yet vitally important pie crust!
Here’s the one I use always! I want to say that it originated from Martha Steward, like 20 something years ago when she was on TV at 10am and opened the door to the entire world to this small town crazy girl. I miss that show.
Makes 2 Discs for either 2 pies or 1 double crusted pie
2 sticks unsalted butter, cut up
1 tsp salt
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp sugar
1/4 – 1/2 cup ice water
Put all except the water in a food processor and pulse until it resembles course meal, kinda crumbly.
Drizzle 1/4 cup of the water first, pulse and if it needs more to stick together, add more.
Divide the dough into 2 pieces, flatten, wrap in plastic and chill for a few hours at least before using.
