No Fuss Pie Crust – It’s A Keeper

There are times when you really want a pie, but you really don’t want to take the trouble of making a pie crust. Chopping butter into cubes, putting a regular spoonful of ice water, and flour all over the counters while you roll out the dough with a rolling pin … some days it feels meditative and other days it just feels like a hassle.

Well, that fuss-free veneer is never a problem. There is no rolling, no slicing, and it cooks beautifully.

Yes, you heard that right. Not rolling!

In a bowl, mix all the ingredients together: flour, oil, cold water (no ice required), baking powder and salt, then press the dough into the pie dish. You can press them with your hands or with a flat bottom glass; It only takes a few moments.

It’s the complete convenience of store-bought peel, but you have control over the ingredients.

For example, you can use any oil you want! Peanuts, olives, avocado, canola … Everything works. It comes out surprisingly thin and flaky.

This is enough to make a single 9 inch pie, and if you need to bake it blindly, just make sure to punch holes in it first with a fork to keep it from swelling too much. If you need a crust, you can double this recipe and simply tear small pieces of dough for the second crust, and scatter them across the top of the pie as a kind of topping.

° 2 cups all-purpose flour

° 1/2 cup oil of your choice

5. Curl or flatten the top edges with the teeth of a fork, fill them with your favorite filling, and bake according to the pie instructions.
