Heather Bertinetti’s pie crust recipe is easy as, well, pie.

Pie Dough Recipe

Makes  2 (9-inch) pie crusts2 cups flour
Pinch of salt
3/4 cup (1 1/2-sticks) unsalted butter, chilled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1/4 cup cold water

In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and salt.  Add the butter to the bowl and “rub” the butter into the flour by massaging it until it resembles a coarse meal with small pebbles of butter.  Add the water to the bowl and continue mixing just until combined.

Divide the dough in half and transfer each half to a sheet of plastic wrap.  Press each portion out into a disk about 1/2-inch thick and wrap tightly with the plastic.  Refrigerate the dough until firm before using, at least 2 hours and up to overnight.
