In a medium bowl, combine flour, sugar, and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture is crumbly. Add water, stirring just until moistened. Knead until dough forms a ball, approximately 10 turns. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap; refrigerate for 1 hour.
Remove dough from refrigerator; bring to room temperature.
On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to 1/8-inch thickness. Place dough in a 9-inch pie pan, trimming edge. If desired, make a decorative edge.
