Directions

  1. Set out the solid margarine stick for a while on the kitchen counter to soften it.
  2. Mix flour, salt,and margarine with one hand in small bowl-1 1/2 quart size. You do not want the mixture to get too warm. Use your other hand to hold bowl or use 2 knives which is what I do.
  3. Mix until you have pea-sized pebbles.
  4. Chill for 30 minutes (or freeze and later defrost and continue with remaining directions).
  5. Remove bowl from refrigerator; add 1 tablespoon of icy cold water. Add more if you need to.
  6. Mix with one hand until mixture sticks together in a ball. Use other hand only to hold the bowl.
  7. Put additional flour onto counter and rolling pin.
  8. Roll dough into a circle for your pie.
