    Default Quick & Easy - No Roll - Pie Crust

    Quick & Easy - No Roll - Pie Crust


    Recipe Description
    A very quick and easy pie crust recipe that doesn't need to be rolled out with a rolling pin.

    I found this recipe worked better for 'savory' items however I'm sure if you added 1-1/2 to 2 tsp of sugar, it would work well for sweets.
    Preparation Steps:
    Have pie filling ready to pour into crust.
    Level of Difficulty:
    Easy
    Time Needed:
    5-10 minutes
    Ingredients:
    1-1/2c all purpose flour (white)
    1/2c vegetable/canola oil
    1/4c ice water
    1/2 tsp salt
    1-1/2 to 2 tsp granulated sugar (optional for sweets)
    Serves:
    1 pie crust/shell
    Directions:
    Mix all ingredients in bowl until a dough forms. Once dough is ready, place in pie pan and use fingers to press out to form crust. Add desired filling and bake as per pie instructions.

    Tip - I partially pre-baked the pie crust/shell before adding filling to help get a firmer & flakier crust.

    I tried this today, it worked great, the only thing is you need to bake it alittle before putting the filling in, like Libby said.

    It was really flaky, I will use this from now on, I like the fact of not having to roll it out.

    ~I'm going to try this too. I don't mind rolling but I always make butter crust.
    Butter is so expensive. Oil is 1/3 the price.~

    This is all I see - how can I find the ingredients/measurement list?

    I hate it when I'm a !!

    You're not a dunce LOL The portion of the forums with the ingredients on the recipes have disappeared so only the instructions remain. I'll dig it out and post it again shortly for you
