Pikawicca says you need this:

For 1 crust, double for 2

1 1/2 C. a-p flour
1/4 tsp. salt, I use less
1/8th tsp, baking powder
1 stick cold unsalted butter cut into Tbs. slices
3 Tbs. ice water

Put flour, baking powder and salt in work bowl of a food processor fitted with the steel knife. Whizz it a few times. Add butter and pulse until combined. Add water by the Tbs. pulsing. After the third Tbs. let it run until it forms a ball on the blade. Remove from processor and flatten into a disc. wrap in wax paper, Saran or what ever and refrigerate for at least an hour. Then roll out and put into your pie dish. If Blind baking prick well and refrigerate until well chilled before baking. This helps prevent it from shrinking.
