Amish Pie Crust
This is also a great recipe to let the kids make, as it is made in the pie pan and its like play dough! I found this crust to be very light tender and crispy. And it has a great taste! Besides it's also better for you as it is made with Canola oil!
I use this recipe also for the base of my cheese cakes just use the spring form pan. Have fun with it and experiment with it's use, as it is very versatile!

PLACE THE FLOUR AND SALT IN AN 8 INCH PIE PAN
MAKE A WELL WITH THE FLOUR AND SALT MIXTURE IN THE PAN
MIX IN A MEASURING CUP THE FOLLOWING INGREDIENTS:
WISK THE OIL AND MILK TO BLEND AND ADD TO THE WELL AREA IN THE FLOUR MIXTURE IN THE PAN.
IF YOU FIND THE PLIABILITY OF THE DOUGH TOO DRY OR TOO WET COMPENSATE WITH MILK. KEEP IN MIND HUMIDITY DOES COME INTO PLAY HERE.
1I mix this with a fork at the beginning until it gets like a play dough consistency then begin kneading in the pan to complete the mixing.
2Once mixed begin patting to the sides and the bottom of the pan taking care to not get it too thick in any areas, It should be pressed to be somewhat level.
3Now just as you would a rolled pie crust you can press the top edge to form that pretty edge or just leave it straight across. Your preference!
4Either bake empty and fill later or fill now with your choice of filling.
5If your baking just the pie crust alone bake at 350 degrees until golden brown.
