This is Mom's pie crust. I've never seen a flakier crust anywhere. This is so easy it just makes other crusts seem like work.

I have made this many times now and shared it many more. To simplify even more, I heat the water and oil in a saucepan, remove from heat and add self-rising flour, stirring until it makes a ball (less than a minute.) I divide in half and make 2 bottom crusts by pressing into pie plates. NO ROLLING! Tastes the same---delicious. I am so glad I found this recipe. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
