  • Summary

    If you can fold a napkin, you can make an old-fashioned pie crust—no food processor, no pastry knife, no vodka. Most important: no cracking or tearing. The dough is supple, smooth, and strong, so it’s easy to handle and shape. It also freezes incredibly well, which is why I always make two. Besides, who doesn’t want more pie? Especially one with a crust this tender, flaky, and crisp.

    Ingredients

    • 1 3/4 cups plus 1 tablespoon | 8 ounces all-purpose flour, such as Gold Medal, plus more for dusting
    • 1 tablespoon (1/2 ounce) sugar
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons Diamond Crystal kosher salt (half as much if iodized)
    • 2 sticks (8 ounces) cold unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
    • 1/2 cup (4 ounces) cold water
