*This recipe yields two 9 or 9 ½ pie crusts or one covered pie crust

Ingredients
2 ½ cups of all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup of unsalted butter – very cold – cut in tablespoon size pieces. You can substitute ½ cup butter and ½ cup shortening if you like.
1/3 cup plus one tablespoon of ice cold water

Directions
Combine flour, sugar, and salt in large bowl. Cut butter into flour mixture with pastry fork or by pulsing a food processor until you have some pea size pieces and some the consistency of course breadcrumbs. Drizzle in water while pulsing the food processor or mix with rubber spatula until a ball starts to form. If ball doesn’t form add on additional tablespoon of water.
