Ingredients:  
For the flakiest crust, make sure all ingredients (including the flour) are cold before you begin.

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons sugar
2 sticks (1 cup) unsalted butter, cold, cut into small pieces
1/4 cup ice water, plus more if needed

Directions:
Directions:
Sift the flour, sugar and salt together in a medium-size to large bowl. Using pastry blender, cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs with some larger pieces. Tossing the mixture quickly and lightly with a fork, sprinkle in the ice cold water 1 tablespoon at a time. (It's better to err on the side of not having enough liquid than to have too much; you don't want a soupy crust.) Continue tossing until the dough holds together when lightly pressed.
Turn out the dough onto a clean work surface. Divide in half, and place each half on a piece of plastic wrap. Shape into flattened disks. Wrap in plastic, and refrigerate at least 1 hour or overnight. The dough may be frozen for up to 1 month; thaw overnight in the refrigerator before using.

Personal Notes:
Makes enough for one double-crust or two single crust 9- inch pies.
