In a food processor, combine flour and salt with one pulse. Add all of the butter and pulse until the mix is crumbly. Add the egg and the water and pulse just until moistened. Turn out on a flat surcice the dough and form into a ball. Flatten the ball and wrap in plastic. Chill for at least 15 minutes.
