Note: From Donna Deane
1 cup flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup cold butter, cut up

1. Combine the flour, sugar and salt in a bowl. Cut in the butter with a pastry blender or a fork until the crust is crumbly. Sprinkle the water over the flour mixture. Stir with a fork until the dough comes together into a ball. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill for 30 minutes. Separate the dough into 4 parts. Roll out one part of the dough on a lightly floured surface into a round to fit into 4-inch round tart pan with a removable bottom. Repeat with the remaining dough.
