Directions See How It's Made
- Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
- Mix all the dry ingredients (minus the water and butter) in a bowl.
- Cut the butter into 1/2-inch cubes, and drop them into the flour mix.
- Add the water, and start kneading.
- At first, you'll just have flour-crusted butterballs, but after a while it'll start to soften.
- As soon as you have a big buttery ball,stop kneading.
- Spread the dough out into a 9-inch pie dish.
- Make sure you maintain a consistent thickness.
- Bake at 375 degrees for 35 minutes.
