  1. In a bowl, combine 2 1/2 cups flour and salt. Cut in 1 cup butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in water, 1 tablespoon at a time, until mixture forms a ball. Divide into 2 balls and wrap in plastic, refrigerating for at least 4 hours.

  3. Take 1 of the 2 dough balls and roll out to fit a 9 inch pie plate. Place dough in pie plate. Press the dough evenly into the bottom and sides of pie plate. Spoon peach filling into dough; dot with 1/3 cup butter. With the other dough ball, create a lattice for top of pie. Brush top of pie with egg and sprinkle 3 teaspoons of sugar on top.
  4. Place pie on rimmed baking sheet. Bake for 1 hour until peaches are tender, crust is golden brown and juices are bubbling through lattice. Transfer pie to rack and cool.
