    1. 1
      In a mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, mix the 4 1/2 cups flour, salt, and sugar for 1 minute.
    2. 2
      Add the butter and mix just until it's a crumbly, sandy mixture.
    3. 3
      The pieces of butter should still be visible.
    4. 4
      In a small bowl, stir the water and vinegar together.
    5. 5
      With the mixer running at medium speed, drizzle in the water-vinegar mixture and mix just until a dough forms.
    6. 6
      Again, the bits of butter should be visible.
    7. 7
      Turn the dough out onto a work surface, divide the dough in half, and shape it into 2 round, flat disks.
    8. 8
      Dust a work surface with just a few tablespoons of flour and keep some extra flour at hand.
    9. 9
      Sprinkle a little flour on top of the dough and start rolling outward from the center with quick, light strokes.
    10. 10
      Don't worry if the edges split a bit; concentrate on getting a good circle going from the center.
    11. 11
      If it gets sticky, sprinkle on a bit more flour, but don't do this more than 2 or 3 times; the dough will absorb too much flour.
    12. 12
      Instead, put it back in the refrigerator for 15 minutes to firm the butter up.
    13. 13
      Keep rolling until the circle is at least 2 inches larger than the pan.
    14. 14
      If the dough tears a bit, don't be concerned; it's easily repaired.
    15. 15
      Using scissors or a sharp knife, trim the dough to within 3/4-inch of the rim.
    16. 16
      Use any extra scraps to patch the crust, pressing with your fingers (wet them if necessary) or set aside.
    17. 17
      Leave the edges of the bottom crust hanging over the rim.
    18. 18
      Roll out the second piece of dough into a circle about 12 inches in diameter.
    19. 19
      Line a sheet pan with parchment or waxed paper.
    20. 20
      Roll the dough up onto the rolling pin, then unroll it onto the sheet pan.

      Absolutely amazing. Super easy. I didn't have a "paddle" attachment. I just used my regular Kitchenaid attachment. It only made enough for one pie (top and bottom crust) but I might have made mine too thick.
