With a machine it's easier. If not, wash your hands and release some stress you might have.
Add flour. Little at the time.
Don't get ideas. Just mix.
Until its evenly mixed.
Add the rest of the flour and a pinch of salt.
You can add less flour if you wish.
Add the egg

Put in plastic wrap.
Cut in half. Put the rest in the freezer. Lasts for 3 weeks.
Roll.. Sprinkle more if needed. Don't forget to sprinkle the bottom too. Do it fast or you will have trouble dealing with the dough as it gets warmer.
Get the thickness that you want.
Grab the pan, or container, that you are going to do your pie on.
Discard the rest. Or mix with ice-cream and make Ben & Jerry's at home.

It will seem very unhealthy.
Grab your frozen piece of dough.
Bake for about thirty minutes more.
Check once in a while just to make sure it's right.
It will get some color.
Don't mind the cracks. Chill it completely
Maybe leave it out for twenty minutes to get colder and then put it in the fridge.
When chilled take it out of the fridge and give it some heat.
Flip it to a plate and trim the excess of dough
If you can't wait to dinner time.
