Sift flour and salt into a bowl. Add cold butter and cut into smaller pieces using a pastry cutter or two knives. Rub mixture using your fingertips until it resembles fine crumbs. Lift your hands to aerate the mixture. Make a well in the centre and add water. Mix with a knife until dough starts coming together. Add enough water to form a dough which is soft, but not sticky. Work dough lightly with your hands to form a ball. Cover with cling film and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Bake blind and use as needed. Makes 1 x 22 cm pie crust.
