tart cherry pie

i wanted pie...

*use this for the pie filling & for baking instructions.

the most amazing pie crust you'll ever make [yield; 1 crust]*
1-1/4 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of sugar
1 stick of cold butter, reallyyyy cold & cut into small pieces.
2 tablespoons of cold sour cream
2 to 3 tablespoons of ice water

*I doubled this recipe to make a lattice on top

Combine flour, salt, and sugar in a large bowl.
Add the cut up butter.
Using a pastry blender (or fingers), mix until it resembles coarse meal.
Add the sour cream & make a well in the center.
Add 2 tablespoons of the ice water and mix with pastry blender.
Be ever so gently. Do not over mix.
You want the dough to come together but still be crumbly.
If needed, add another tablespoon of the ice water.
Turn the dough out onto the counter and form into a ball.
Flatten like a disc, cover with plastic wrap, and chill 2-3 hours.
