Tara's Story

No rolling pin required for this easy, tasty pie crust. I don't think I'll buy another pre-made pie shell again!

This is my version of a recipe I found on the internet.


1 1/2 c
all purpose flour
2 tsp
1/2 tsp
1/2 c
vegetable oil
2 Tbsp
cold milk

Directions Step-By-Step

Sift flour, sugar, and salt into a 9-inch pie plate.
In a 1-cup measuring cup, whisk together oil and milk and pour over flour mixture.
Using a fork, mix until completely dampened. Press dough evenly over bottom of pie plate then up sides and over rim.
Bake according to pie filling/recipe directions. OR if using as a baked pie shell, bake in a preheated oven at 425 for 12 to 15 minutes.

    Tara, thanks for posting this. I usually don't make a crust for just the bottom crust pies but this is sooo easy and looks beautiful. So glad you posted it. I'll use it this week. Just a personal note, I have family and friends in Boston, are you near that? Also, I went to high school in the Bronx, NY with a Lillian Pacheco it would be funny if you were related? She was a good friend and a fantastic basketball player too. Again, thanks for posting.
