  2. Add 6 tablespoons ice water.

  3. Shape into a ball by first folding dough toward middle of bowl with a cake spatula. (Don't handle dough any more than necessary as your hands will heat dough making it hard to work with.)

  4. Place half dough ball onto floured cutting board, countertop, or mat and roll into a circle larger than top rim of pie pan. Repeat with other half.
