  1. Blend flour and salt; cut in the butter with pastry blender or with 2 table knives until dough is size of small peas; lightly stir in water in with fork until easily moistened.

  3. Soak sliced almonds for step 5.

  5. Chill in refrigerator for 30 minutes while preparing your quiche filling. This will make rolling the crust out easier.
