Savory Pie Crust

Between getting out the ingredients I needed and mixing this up it took a total of about two minutes!  That is huge, I love that this is so easy and quick and yummy, now you have NO excuse for buying a pre made pie crust!
1 cup flour
¼ cup cold butter, diced
½ teaspoon salt
3-5 tablespoons ice water (Mine took 3)
Add flour, butter, and salt to a food processor with blade attachment.
Pulse a few times until the ingredients turn into small pea size chunks.
Add 1 tablespoon of water at a time, pulsing in between, until dough forms.
Don’t add extra water! The dough should not be wet.
Once the dough has formed, turn it out onto a floured workspace and knead for a minute or two until dough is smooth.
Add extra flour if needed.
Form dough into a disk, wrap with saran wrap, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before using.
