Melanie's Pie Crust

This is actually from the Joy of Cooking cookbook, but I saw another pie crust recipe on here and added Melanie's name to distinguish it because that is where I got it from!

2 C Flour
1 tsp Salt
2/3 C + 2 Tbsp Butter
4 Tbsp Water

Mix flour and salt. Cut the butter into the flour/salt mixture. Then add the water, but don't mix and mess with the dough too much or the crust won't be flaky. Roll out so it gets big enough to cover a pie pan. Fold gently in half then half again to transport the dough to the pie pan. Unfold it and fill the pan. Cut the edges, leaving about 1/2 to 1 inch around the edge of the dish. Fold the excess under and pinch together to form the crinkled edge of the pie. Fill with the desired filling and bake as instructed with the filling's recipe.
