Start by combining the dry ingredients in a bowl, Cut in Softened (But not melted) Butter with a fork until you get the crumbly cornmeal look.
Slowly add in water until everything holds together and form 2 balls of dough. Roll out the dough and place it in your pan. You can also freeze it at this point if you only need one crust. I like to roll mine on some kind of parchment, press and seal or cling wrap so that it’s easy to freeze and transfer.
That’s it, you’re ready to add your pie filling and bake! :)
