1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, chilled and cut into small pieces
6 Tablespoons ice water, divided use
In a food processor, mix together flour and salt.
Add butter, and process until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Add water 1 Tablespoon at a time.
Pulse briefly until dough begins to form in clumps.
Remove dough from processor onto a floured surface, and form into a ball.
Allow dough to rest at room temperature for 30 to 45 minutes before rolling out.
On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to fit pie pan.
Place in pan, and crimp edge.
Prick the bottom of dough several times with a fork.
Place in freezer for 15 to 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, preheat oven to 425ºF (220ºC).
Fill crust with beans, or use pie weights.
Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes.
Remove pie weights, and bake another 5 minutes.
If necessary, cover with foil to prevent overbrowning.
