Flakiest Pie Crust ever

I adapted this from azcentral.com/...c-quiche-crust.html

I left out the salt accidentally, but didn't miss it at all, so won't be adding it in the future. Also it called for 2 tbsp of ice water, but I used 6. I always make my own pie crusts, and this is by far the best recipe I've ever used.

Ingredients

1 1/4 c
all purpose flour
1/2 c
cold butter (1 stick)
6 Tbsp
ice water

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Place flour and butter in food processor. Pulse until it resembles coarse meal. Add 1 tbsp of ice water at time (while pulsing) add just enough until dough starts to cling together. I used 6 tbsp.
2
Remove blade and dough and form into a ball, roll out on a lightly floured surface. Place in a 9" pie plate, cut edges. Place in fridge for at least 30 min.
OR wrap ball into plastic wrap for 30 min. Remove and roll out and place in pie plate.
3
If pre-baking, place parchment paper or foil on top of crust, place dried beans on top. Bake at 375° for about 25 min.
