2. Mix until dough clumps.  Be careful not to over-mix as your crust will become tough.

3. Prepare a surface to roll out your dough, ideally something like aluminum foil or wax paper that you can pick up. Before you start rolling, dust your surface and the top of your dough with flour to prevent sticking.

4. Roll the dough from the center out until it is approximately 11 inches in diameter. (Ideally, use a rolling pin. An empty paper towel roll could also work… get creative. )

5. Transfer your dough to your pie tin by placing the tin face down in the middle of the crust, sliding your hand underneath your surface and flipping the whole thing.

6. Crimp the edges of your crust by pinching  the dough into small points all around the edge of the tin.
