Add butter and process until the mixture resembles a coarse meal, about 10 seconds.

With the machine running, add ice water in a slow, steady stream through the feed tube.

Pulse until dough holds together without being wet. It should look crumbly.

Empty dough onto a flowered surface and shape it into a round-flat disc.

surface, roll the dough out to a 12- inch circle and be about 1/8–inch thick and place it onto 

a 9-inch pie plate.
