1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 Tbl sugar
1/8 t. salt
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, chilled and cut into small pices
1 1/2 Tbl ice water
2 Tbl. heavy cream

Combine the flour, sugar, and salt in a medium bowl.  Cut in the butter until 
the mixture resembles coarse meal.  A few drops at a time, add just enough ice 
water to hold the dough together.  Place the pastry on a lightly floured board 
and roll into thickness of 1/8 inch.  Chill 20 minutes.

Place pastry over the cobbler and crimp the edges.  Cut a decorative pattern
in the top, brush with cream, and sprinkle with remaining tablespoon of sugar.

Bake at 425 until topping is golden brown and fruit juices are bubbling, about 
25 minutes.

Note: I always have to add more water and I never have cream to top it with, 
although I do still put the sugar on top.  This is a very good crust for
