- 1 unbaked 9-inch pie crust
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt

- Place the pie crust in a 9-inch cake pan, trimming any excess edges. Set aside.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
- In a separate large mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes.
