Perfect results! This was my first time making a crust from scratch.
I don't have a food processor, so instead froze my butter sticks for a couple hours, then cut them in half and grated them by hand. I used a pastry-blending hand tool to bring the dough together, and used just a touch more than the 1/2 c. water. Perhaps mixing it by hand makes it harder to use less water, but the results were delicious! I made the apple raspberry pie.
