2 tbs sugar
6 tbs butter cut into small cubes
1 egg mixed with 2 tbs ice water
In the bowl of a food processor combine the flour, salt, sugar and process to combine. Add the butter and pulse 5 to 6 times. The mixture should look like course crumbs. Add egg mixture and pulse another 3 to 4 times just until the mixture starts to come together into large clumps.

Fill with pie weights or beans, and bake for 4 minutes. Remove foil; prick dough with a fork and back for another 8 to 10 minutes until lightly brown.
