Easy Pie Crust Recipe
For most of my pie recipes, I use the pie crust that my grandma always used. It comes from a VERY old Pillsbury cookbook. This is the one she most often used and now my mom uses. It’s made withoil, instead of butter or shortening, yet it is the flakiest pie crust ever. After tasting my chocolate pie, my husband actually commented on the crust and mentioned that he liked it better than most pie crusts because it was soft and flaky, not as hard as a normal pie crust. This crust is so tender that it almost melts in your mouth when you eat it.
My favorite thing about using an all oil pie crust is how super simple it is to make.It’s only 5 ingredients, you don’t need a food processor or pastry cutter, and there is no chilling required. You just mix the ingredients and pat the crust into the pie plate. In less than 5 minutes, you have pie crust that is ready to be filled and baked. Or for a no bake pie, like the chocolate pie, just bake it for about 10 minutes.
This easy pie crust recipe is made with simple ingredients that you may already have in your kitchen. Here’s what you’ll need to make it:Flour. All-purpose flour is best for this recipe. If you happen to only have self-rising flour, just omit the salt.Sugar.A very small amount of sugar is used for an ever-so-slight sweetness.Salt. To balance the sweetness.Oil. Using oil instead of butter or shortening, gives this crust thatmelt-in-your-mouth tenderness of Grandma’s classic pies.Milk. I typically use whole milk, but you can use any kind of milk in this recipe. If you are vegan or have a dairy allergy, simply use a non-dairy milk like almond, oat or coconut milk.
Pie Crust With Oil
Most any oil variety will work in this crust recipe. The options are endless! I typically use vegetable or canola oil, like Grandma did. But there are healthier choices, so feel free to experiment. Here are some options:Coconut oil (melted)Grapeseed oilOlive oilAvocado oil
How to Make Oil Pie Crust
To make this recipe, you only need about 5 minutes. It’s really just a matter of stirring ingredients together. Here’s a simple rundown:Whisk flour, sugar and salt together in a medium to large mixing bowl.Add oil and milk; mix well and stir together until dough forms.For blind baked pie crust, bake in a 425ºF. preheated oven for 10-12 minutes. Blind baking is basically pre-baking and means to bake before adding the filling to prevent the crust from absorbing the filling and becoming soggy. If the pie recipe, doesn’t call for blind baking the pie crust, simply fill it with pie filling and then bake as instructed in the pie recipe.
TipsIf your recipe calls for a double pie crust, double this recipe. To add a crust to the top of the pie, roll half of the dough in between 2 sheets of wax paper. Remove the top sheet of wax paper and use the bottom sheet to help lift the dough and place it onto the top of the pie. Press to seal the edges and cut a few slits in the top to vent.If you find that your dough is too dry to come together when you are mixing it, add 1-2 more tablespoons of milk.To make dough in advance, form pie dough into a ball anddouble wrap in plastic wrap. Store in the fridge for up to 2 days. When ready to use, remove from the fridge for about 30-60 minutes to bring to room temperature, and proceed as instructed.If when baking, you notice that the edges of your crust are browning more quickly than the rest, you can cover them with foil or use an aluminum shield. This will help everything to bake more evenly.
