How to Make Oatmeal Pastry
- Mix the dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Cut in the shortening until the size of peas. Mix in the water a tablespoon at a time with a fork until the dough comes together.
- This recipe takes a bit more water than standard pastry because the oats absorb some water. Divide the dough in half and form each into a 1/2 inch thick disk, wrap each half in plastic and chill 30 minutes before rolling. Makes enough for a 10-inch double crust pie.
