Directions

In a small bowl, mix flour and salt; cut in butter until crumbly. Gradually add ice water, tossing with a fork until dough holds together when pressed. Shape into a disk; wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate 1 hour or overnight.

"My son chose this recipe because his favorite dessert is Kentucky Derby pie. This is very close. We like being able to cut into squares to share easily. A keeper for our family."
