Instructions Combine flour, salt, sugar & butter in large bowl. With a pastry cutter start working the butter into the dry ingredients until it looks like crumbs. You can also use 2 butter knives & cross them through the ingredients to combine Once you have reached a crumbly texture add water Work it together with your hands pressing & lightly kneading it together until you have a moist ball that holds together well. On a well floured surface - place dough Flour your rolling pin & start working from the center pushing outward in all directions Once you have stretched the dough large enough to fill your pie plate - transfer to your plate. Flute your edges. If you are baking this pie & filling afterwards - Poke holes in bottom of crust with a fork & bake at 425 degrees conventional/ 400 convection for approximately 15 minutes. Baking time is just for crust. If you are filling the pie before baking - do not poke holes in crust. Recipe Notes Recipe is for 1 bottom crust. You can easily double this for a top & bottom or continue doubling on the number of pies you are making.
