Step 1

In a mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, combine the flour, salt, and sugar on low speed for about 30 seconds. If using a food processor, do the same thing and pulse a couple of times to get the dry ingredients combined

Step 2

Cut the chilled butter into smaller cubed, then add all the butter to the flour mixture and combine on low speed for 1-1 1/2 minutes, until the mixture looks crumbly, with bits of dough the size of peas.

Step 3

Add 5 tablespoons of ice cold water , 1 tablespoon at a time, mixing on low speed for 10 seconds after each addition. After the last addition, the dough should start coming together in a ball. If it doesn't, continue mixing about 10 seconds longer. If it still dry and somewhat crumbly, add an additional 1 tablespoon of ice water.

Roll the large pie crust disc into a 1/8-inch-thick circle large enough to cover the bottom and sides of a 9-inch pie plate. Roll the smaller pie crust disc into a slightly smaller circle to top your pie with.

Gently wrap your pie dough over the rolling pin and set it in the un-greased pie plate.

Step 7

Set it in place and gently crimp the outside edges with your fingers. Prick the bottom of the pie dough using a fork. then freeze the crust again for 30 minutes before baking. While the pie crust is cooling, start preheating the oven to 425F.

Bake the crust for 15 minutes then remove the parchment and weights. Place the crust back into the oven for 10-15 minutes or until the crust if golden brown.
