Place flour, salt and sugar in the bowl of a food processor and pulse briefly to combine, or combine by hand in a large bowl. Add butter and pulse until mixture resembles coarse meal, about 10 seconds in the food processor. Alternately, cut butter in by hand with two table knives. Add 2 to 3 tablespoons ice water and pulse, or mix by hand with a fork, just until dough begins to come together.

Turn dough out onto a cutting board or smooth surface and form into a flattened disc. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for several hours or overnight. Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface when ready to use.
