2/3 cup of  Olive Oil
2 1/2 cups of all purpose flour-pre sifted
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder 
1/2 cup ice water
1 egg
1 tbsp of vinegar

Place oil in the freezer until it is almost frozen. If you want to speed up this process divide the oil in two cups. Place pre-sifted flour in a bowl add baking powder and salt. Place bowl in refrigerator. In a cup place water, egg and vinegar, beat and then place in refrigerator. If possible place rolling pin  in fridge, also.

When oil is of the right consistency, cut it into the flour mixture. Working quickly, mix until it forms uniformly course crumbs. 
Add the liquid ingredients gradually, tossing lightly with a fork, until dough sticks together. 
If dough is too wet add a little extra flour.   Roll out onto floured surface.  Use as you would use any regular pie pastry. 
This recipe make enough for a 9" double crust pie.  This dough is fairly easy to work with, but is best not overworked.
Bake as for your usual pie~ double or single pie crust
