Pie is the greatest reward after enduring the savory side of Thanksgiving. And while you'll find pie crusts that use any assortment of shortening and lard, we say butter is pie's best friend. Nothing beats it on flavor or flaky texture, so take this recipe to heart. It's a mere four ingredients, and all it takes is a food processor, flour, frozen butter, and a slow, steady stream of ice-cold water to make the queen of all doughs.

Once you have it, go use it in one of the 13 pies above. Or two. Or three.
