Make pie crust manually:  To a bowl add flour, salt and mix.  Cut the butter with a knife into bits, add it to the four and with a fork mix till it forms little balls the size of peas.  Slowly add water and continue to mix till the flour comes together.  Use your hands to make a ball.  Press the ball on a floured work surface and roll it till it fits the pie plate(about 12" diameter).  Press the dough on the pie dish and shape the edges.
