Homemade Pie Dough
- Combine flour, sugar, salt and butter in a large bowl and mix with a hand mixer until the mixture resembles coarse meal.
- Add just enough of the ice water so the dough holds together when pinched between two fingers. Kneed dough until well combined and then divide it into two discs.
- Wrap each disc in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. After chilled, roll out and use as desired.
