To make the pie crust, mix the flour, salt and sugar in a large bowl.

Add the cold butter and, using a pastry cutter or two forks, fold it into the flour mixture until it has a coarse crumb texture.

Add the cold water, a tablespoon at a time, and mix with a fork until the dough begins to come together. Don’t add too much water. The dough should be wet enough to form a ball, but not sticky.

Divide the dough into two parts, form two flat discs and wrap them in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least one hour.
