My Other Pie Crust

This is the Martha Stewart crust with sugar added.
This crust works better if you're concerned about the shape.
Double 9" Pie Crust

2 1/2 c flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 c sugar
2 sticks unsalted butter
ice water

Blend flour, salt, and sugar.  Cut in butter.  Stir in enough ice water until the dough starts to hold.  Form two discs, wrapping with plastic wrap.  Refrigerate at least 3 hours. 

I bake pies at 425F for 20 minutes.  Then lower the temp to 375F and bake at least another hour until bubbling in the middle, covering sides with foil.
