This is my children's grandmother, Evelyn Goss, recipe that she gave me years ago! It is so always flaky and dependable. We use to make our infamous homemade pear pie.

Cook:

10 Min

Method:

Bake

Ingredients

1 1/3 c
flour, sifted
1 tsp
salt
1/3 c
cooking oil
3 Tbsp
cold milk

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Mix together the flour and salt and set aside in a bowl.
2
Pour the oil and cold milk into measuring cup and do NOT mix or stir.
3
Pour liquid into flour mixture all at once and stir until mixed. Press with hands into a smooth ball and flatten slightly. Place between two sheets of waxed paper 12 inches square. Slightly dampen tabletop will keep waxed paper from slipping.
4
Roll out gently until circle reaches the edge of paper. If any tears appear, place scrap piece over tear and press. Pull off top wax paper and place shell down, paper up into a pie plate.
5
Slowly peel off paper and gently ease and fit pastry into pan. If filling with no bake filling,build fluted edge and prick bottom of shell with a fork and bake at 475 for 8 to 10 minutes. If using raw shell to bake a pie, follow directions from your recipe on bake degrees/time. Note: this can easily be frozen and used later! Enjoy...
