I was so excited to find a large food processor at a local yard sale. I knew it would cut my pie making time in half! The food processor is able to break down the butter into the right size pieces before it even starts to warm up. I find the processor leads to a flaker crust. If you don’t have a food processor you can Make a Pie Crust by hand as well.

Mix the flour, sugar, and salt together in the food processor. Cut your butter up in pieces.
Add the butter to the flour mix and pulse until the mix has a few butter pieces the size of peas.
Pour 1/4 cup of water into the mixture and pulse until the mixture starts to come together.
