Kill. me. now.

BEST. CRUST. EVER.
I've since made 2 chicken pot pies and 2 fruit pies using the following recipe and I'm never using another one again. Ever.
adapted from : Bon Appetit
Best Pie Crust ever (good for top and bottom of one pie)
2 1/2 C. flour
1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp salt
1 C. butter/margarine, cut into small chunks and frozen. (that would be 2 sticks)(do not use shortening, that batch did not work for me)
5 tbsp (or more) of ice water.
mix first 3 ingredients and then add all the frozen butter. Mix with pastry blender (your hands are too warm) it will be very crumbly.
then add 5 tbsp of ice water and mix with your hand. it should be a little sticky and not quite together yet.
separate into 2 halves and form a disc shape. wrap into saran wrap and chill in the fridge for at least one hour.
roll out with lots of flour and make your pie.
Oh. so. delicious.
