Step 1

In medium bowl mix together 1 cup flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon butter, until crumbly.

Step 2

Add one tablespoon of COLD water at a time, until pastry is moistened, and leaves the side of the bowl.

On a lightly floured surface, roll pastry out to fit 9 inch pie pan. Place pastry into pan. Trim over-hanging edge one inch from pan. Fold and roll pastry under even with the pan.

With a spoon, carefully cover entire top of filling to the edges. Sprinkle with cinnamon, optional.

Chef's Notes

I find it best to use my hands when making the pie crust. It is messy, but it makes the whole process a lot faster.
