(OK, well, in the interest of having more than ten words in this post:
- 1.5 sticks butter or (full-fat) margarine
- 2 cups flour
Split it up 60-40. Start with the bigger part. Spread a large, flat-woven tea towel on a space of clean, dry countertop. Toss a handful of flour on the right side of the tea towel. Put the ball of dough on the flour. Put more flour on the ball of dough. Fold the other side of the tea towel over the dough. Roll until it starts to be uncooperative (dough squishes out unevenly, there seem to be cracks, it is annoying you) - three to five good rolls. Peel the tea towel back, flip the dough over, and flour over and under it again. Repeat this until the dough is circular and 2-3 inches wider in diameter than your pie plate. Fold the tea towel in half with the dough in, lift it over the pie plate, and dump it in. Spread it out.
Repeat this process with the smaller ball of dough, only roll it slightly smaller. And don't put it on the pie until after you put the filling in.)
