8
Flour
Butter
Sugar
Water
Salt
In a food processor, combine ¾ of the flour with the sugar and salt. Pulse together 2 times. Then, add the butter (be sure to evenly spread it around the bowl of the processor) and pulse together 25 times (using short pulses). Add the remaining flour and pulse together 5 times, then place the flour mixture into a large bowl. Add the cold water and knead together until a ball forms. Form a disk, cover with saran wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Once chilled, roll out into a large circular sheet. Place in pie dish, and decorate as you wish. Before cooking, brush the crust with egg wash (just whisk the egg white) Then place a piece of parchment in the pie and fill with dried beans (this helps keep the shape of the crust while baking) Bake on 350 for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown.
