All purpose flour: 1 cup
Margarine: 1/2 cup (cooled cubes)
Salt: 1/2 teaspoon (If margarine is salted, cancel the salt)
Iced water: 2 to 4 tablespoons
*NOTE* The video below shows how to make DOUBLE the amount of pie dough. The ingredients above is only half the amount to make 1 pie shell.

1. Put the flour in the food processor, add the salt and margarine, and pulse them till you have pea sized balls.
3. Add 2 tablespoons of iced water to conform a big ball and pulse that again so that the dough would come together. Add in another 1 tablespoons of water till it forms a ball.  (The amount of water will vary from 2 to 4 tablespoons. Watch the video below to get an idea of how it is supposed to be).
4. Get the pie dough out of the food processor and shape it into a disc like shape. Wrap it up loosely in a plastic wrap and flatten it down by pressing with your hand to make it easier on you later when you use your rolling-pin.
5. Cool it in the fridge for an hour or overnight.
