2 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp salt
2 sticks cold unsalted butter, diced
6 ounces cold cream cheese, diced
3 to 4 tbsp ice water
(pinch sugar, optional)
1. Combine the flour and the salt.
2. Cut in butter and cream cheese until crumbly, use hands to blend together into a smooth dough. It will be sticky. Split in half and wrap with plastic wrap, chill for at least an hour, the colder the better!
3. Roll out the dough and place it appropriately in the pie pan. You can now fill the pan with whatever you are using for pie (apples, peaches, etc.)
