Cut 2 sticks of butter into quarter-inch slices and place them the freezer for at least 10 mins.
Measure ½ cup of water and add 2-3 ice cubes.
Using either a mixer or a food processor mix together flour, salt and sugar.
Remove butter from freezer and add half of it to the flour mixture. Mix until butter is coated in flour. Add the remaining butter and mix until it is well blended.
Slowly add ½ cup of water and mix. If using a mixer the dough will start to form a ball, if using a food processor the dough will start to form large chunks.
Remove the dough from the mixer and place it on a lightly floured surface.
Form dough into 2 tight balls and flatten slightly into a disc shape. Tightly wrap 2-3 layers of plastic wrap around each disc of dough and place it in the freezer for about an hour.
Once the dough is chilled, remove it from the freezer. Place the dough on a lightly floured surface.
Using a rolling pin, roll dough out in all directions forming a circle.
Fold the dough into quarters and place it in the pie plate.
