Ingredients & Directions

2 1/4 c All-purpose flour
1 ts Salt
1/2 ts Sugar
10 tb Chilled butter; lard or
-shortening, cut small
4 1/2 tb Ice water

Combine flour and salt in a medium bowl. Add butter or lard and cut
into flour using your fingers, a pastry blender or 2 knives, until
mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in water with a fork, 1
tablespoon at a time and work in with your hands until dough is just
moist enough to come together in a smooth ball. You may not need to
use all the water. Be careful not to overwork or dough will be tough.
If you’re making 2 crusts, cut in half and shape each half into a
flattened round. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at
20 minutes. Remove 1 round of dough from refrigerator and
place on a lightly-floured surface. Roll into a circle about 14
inches across and 1/8-inch thick. Gently fold dough in half, then in
half again so that you can lift it without tearing, and unfold it
into a 9-inch pie or tart pan. Crimp edges or pinch in a decorative
border. Fill and bake as directed in recipe. Dough may be prepared up
to 2 days in advance and refrigerated, or frozen. This recipe yields
two 9-inch pie crusts.
