    Make the crust. In a food processor, add the flour, and salt, and pulse to combine. Add the butter a little at a time while pulsing. Once it starts to looks like cornmeal, add the water until dough starts to come together.

    350 ˚F / 177 ˚C

    • 1/4 Cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter

    • 3/4 Cup granulated sugar

    Roll the pie crust into a circle large enough to cover the pan. Prick the pie dough with a fork and cover the pan with the pie dough. Trim the crust leaving room for shrinkage.
