for the crust:
With the steel chopping blade in place in the food processor, blend the flour and the salt. Add the butter which has been cut into chunks and process just until the butter is the size of your thumb nail. Add the water and process just until the mixture wants to form a ball. Remove it and wrap in plastic wrap and chill for about 10 minutes, while you flour a pastry cloth and rolling pin cover. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Roll out the crust into a round circle about to fit into the pie dish you are using. Lift the crust into the dish, fitting it in gently and fluting the edges. Pierce the crust with a fork in many places. Gently cover the crust with a piece of foil, and then fill the bottom with pie weights or beans. Bake for 15 minutes, or until the edges are turning brown. Carefully remove the foil and the beans, and continue to bake the crust until the inside has browned, about 3-5 minutes more. Remove from oven and set aside to cool.
