1 cup of cold, unsalted butter (cut into cubes)
1 teaspoon of salt
2 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon of granulated sugar
6-8 tablespoons of ice water


In a large mixing bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, salt, and granulated sugar.
Add the cold, cubed butter to the flour mixture.
Use a pastry cutter or your fingertips to incorporate the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs with pea-sized butter pieces.
Gradually add the ice water, one tablespoon at a time, mixing gently with a fork until the dough just begins to come together. Avoid overworking the dough.
Once the dough starts to come together, gather it into a ball and divide it into two equal portions.
Flatten each portion into a disk, wrap tightly with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least one hour, or overnight.
When ready to use, remove the dough from the refrigerator and let it sit at room temperature for about 10 minutes to slightly soften.
Preheat the oven to the temperature specified in your pie recipe.
On a lightly floured surface, roll out one disk of dough into a circle approximately 12 inches in diameter, depending on your pie dish size.
Carefully transfer the rolled-out dough to the pie dish, gently pressing it into the bottom and up the sides.
Trim any excess dough hanging over the edges of the pie dish.
Fill the pie crust with your desired filling.
