Pie Crust

This is a basic pie dough that only uses butter. The dough is a bit squirrelly to deal with, but it has a superior flavor. If all else fails, chill it completely and just press it evenly into the pie plate rather than rolling it out. Makes 1 9 inch pie crust. Can be doubled to make two for a covered pie. If pre-baking, preheat oven to 400 degrees. Chill the dough in the pan for at least 30 minutes. Prick the bottom of the crust all over with a fork, then weigh the dough down with dried beans and cover the edges with aluminum foil. Bake for 25 minutes, then remove foil and bake for another five minutes. Allow crust to cool completely and remove beans before adding any fillings.
