My mom ALWAYS used this pie crust recipe and it's the only one I can make with certainty and KNOW it will turn out right everytime. I have had some really good shortening crusts but this one is my alltime favorite.

Prep:

10 Min

Ingredients

2 c

1 tsp
salt
3/4 c
cooking oil (corn, canola, vegetable)
1/4 c
+2 tbsp. milk (fat free to regular works)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Mix flour and salt in a bowl. In a seperate container whisk milk and oil together until well mixed and immediately pour into flour/salt mixture. Mix with a fork until all flour is absorbed.
2
This recipe makes enough dough for 1 double crust 9-inch pie or 2 single crust 9-inch pies. When rolling out, place between 2 pieces of waxed paper. Roll to desired size, remove top sheet of waxed paper, invert over pie plate and press in. The nice thing about this crust is that you don't have to roll it paper thin and if it tears it's very forgiving and easy to fix.
