    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 400ºF.
    2. 2
      Combine flour and sugar in a large bowl or food processor. Add margarine and process, or mix together with your fingers, until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add cold water, one tablespoon at a time, and process, or mix, until a manageable dough forms; turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and roll into a 12-inch circle.
    3. 3
      Press dough into the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch pie pan or removable-bottom tart pan; prick the bottom all over with a fork, cover dough with foil and fill with dried beans or rice.
    4. 4
      Bake 10 minutes. Remove beans and foil and bake until crust is golden brown, about 20 minutes more. Remove from oven and cool completely on a wire rack. Yields 8 slices per crust.

      Even though I appreciated the fewer calories, the crust was rather tough and rubbery. Despite being so hard to cut through, It had a good flavor to it. The only change I made was to use light butter instead of the margarine. I also only had a 10-inch pie plate available, so the edges weren't as pretty as they would have been if I had been using a 9-inch.
