Savory Butter Pastry Crust
1 cups flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. baking powder
1/2 cup cold butter cut into 16 pieces
3 to 4 tbsp. ice water

Prep time: 15 minutes, Cook time: about 15 minutes

Place flour, salt and baking powder in a large bowl and stir to mix ingredients. Add butter and mix with a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles small peas. Sprinkle 3 tbsp. water over flour mixture and stir just until mixture forms a ball, adding additional water 1 tsp. at a time if dough is too dry. Knead several times. (Dough may be wrapped and refrigerated at this point until ready to bake.) Roll into an 11-inch circle on a lightly floured surface. Line a 9-inch deep dish pie plate with pastry and fold edges under; flute edges decoratively. To pre-bake pie crust, prick bottom with a fork and line with foil or parchment paper; fill with dry beans or pie weights. Bake in a preheated 400°F oven for 10 minutes; remove beans and foil and bake for 3 to 5 minutes more or until bottom is lightly browned.

Makes 1 pie crust.
