and work with your fingertips till the mixture is mealy.
2. Add 2 to 3 tablespoons of the water, mix till the pastry holds together,
then continue adding just enough water to make a smooth ball of dough. Wrap
in plastic wrap and chill (the dough) about 20 minutes.
3. Preheat the oven to 400F. Grease a 9-inch pie plate and set aside.
4. roll out pastry wide enough to line the bottom and sides of the prepared
pie plate, and scatter the chopped ham evenly over the bottom.
