Easy Pie Crust!


I've always been interested in baking ever since I was little girl, I still remember standing on a kitchen chair because my tiny legs were much to small to reach the counter to help my grandma roll out cookie dough. Baking is my getaway it's relaxing and I enjoy it. I always thought pie crust was hard to make for some reason, therefore I never was interested into making my own and always bought pre-made pie crust. Boy oh boy was I surprised to learn it really is easy to make, cost effective and you probably have all the ingredients in your cabinets right now! The other day  I was in a rush and had no time to run to store to purchase premade pie dough. I quickly looked online and used the first pie crust recipe I ran across. This pie crust is incredibly easy and being a busy mom it was a recipe that was right up my alley! In less than 20 minutes I had my pie crust ready to use. I opted to make a pumpkin pie which is 1 of my fall favorites with this pie crust.  I prefer this pie crust over the premade kind. This pie crust turned out excellent. Flaky and delicious! Everyone enjoyed it and wanted the recipe!

This is such an easier recipe than using butter. The oil mixes well with the flour and I need to try this pie crust recipe next time I make pies. Thanks for sharing.
