Four Ingredient Pie Crust

One of the simplest and flakiest pie crust ever. My mom taught me how to make this when I was little and people love it. When I got older I found out that wax paper dusted with flour makes it easy to transfer. Most people work WAY too much flour into their crust. The key is just enough that its not super tacky.
