Add the water and work in gently until a dough has formed. Shape into a ball, and place on floured work surface. Using a floured rolling pin, roll the dough out until it is large enough to lay across a 9” pie plate. Gently work the dough into the pie dish, shape crust as desired, and cut off any overlaying pie dough with kitchen shears. Refrigerate for 20-30 minutes.
