My Favorite Pie Crust

My Favorite Pie Crust is the newest in a long list of die doughs that I adore.  It’s hard to stick to just one, so I just keep offering new ones.  This one is perfect for a bottom crust as well as lattice & adornments for the top layer.  

It comes together easily in the food processor and rolls out beautifully!

Mix together the flour, sugar and salt in the bowl of a food processor.  Pulse in the butter until it’s crumbly.

Add ice water, one tablespoon at a time, until the dough comes together.

Divide the dough into two pieces, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least two hours.  You can also leave it in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or freeze for 2 months.  At this point, follow the pie directions for rolling out.
