Description

4 Ingredients. 2 Minutes. Easy-peasy and oh-so tasty, too. This crust works equally as well for sweet pies as it does for savory quiches.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • ⅓ cups Vegetable Oil
  • 2-½ Tablespoons Milk

Preparation

Assemble ingredients in a pie pan and mix thoroughly with a fork. It should come together in a semi-crumbly fashion. Once all ingredients are incorporated together, press with your fingers into the bottom and up the sides of the pie pan. Chill before filling, if you wish—no need to bake before making your actual pie!

I love this pie crust!!!! Have made it several times for tomato/squash pie! Omitted salt and added a little sugar for a mango pie. It stays so crisp for so long!!! Thank you for this perfect, easy, fast crust!

This pastry was amazing. So simple, so quick, so crisp and made me look like a real supermum! Thank you for sharing.

One of my sons wondered whether it could be turned into a sweet pastry so I’m going to try by using melted unsalted butter instead of oil and sugar instead of salt. Crossing fingers;-D

I can’t wait to try this as if it works even my boys will be able to make pies and quiches without fuss (or mess!). Sadly, my broken thumb will no longer be a valid excuse for not making them myself with this pastry!

I used this crust for a banana cream pie recipe but the crust turned out overly salty. I’ll try it again by reducing the salt to 1/4 tsp to see if I get a better result next time.

I have never made a pie crust. I am not a fan of pie crust. However, this was easy and not intimidating at all. Nice and thin with a little flake. I used a teaspoon of sugar instead of the salt. Use the salt for a savory recipe. You cannot go wrong with this recipe! Thank you for sharing.

Awesome recipe! I put just a dash of salt in and added 2 T of sugar (probably should have only added 1) and used it for Dutch Apple Pie. Quick, easy, no mess, tasted great, and baked up perfectly. This will definitely be my new go-to pie crust recipe.
