Here is my pie crust, quite simple really, and much better results than Pilsbury, but you can be the judge of that.

1 1/2 c flour

1/2 tsp salt

1 TBL sugar

1 stick of butter, cold

4 TBLS ice water 
mix flour salt, and sugar, then pulse with mixer or cut in butter by hand until it forms small pebbles, about seven pulses in a mixer. then gradually add water just until dough forms. turn on to a floured surface and form into one or 2 discs, touching as little as possible, gotta keep that butter cold, cold, cold! wrap in plastic and chill till hard, at least an hour, then roll out.

Molly- I saw another version of a pie crust that used one egg wisked with water. Do you know what the purpose of the egg is for?
