We didn't have a ton of butter in the fridge, but we had a ton of canola oil. I decided to look up a recipe for a canola oil pie crust and this was the first recipe that showed up. I was a little nervous having tried to make an olive oil pie crust and it being SUPER crunchy and not very good, but I needed a pie crust so I made this. It was SO good. My whole family was raving about how delicious and buttery it was! The funny thing was, not a speck of butter touched this pie crust. Using it again right now- defiantly recommend!! :)

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Mix the ingredients and press evenly into a 9 inch pie plate.
  2. Tips: Crumble the dough evenly into the pie plate and then pat into place with your fingers to evenly distribute the dough on the bottom of the pan and up the sides.
  3. If needing a baked unfilled shell I suggest baking the shell at 325* for about 18 minutes. You want it to be slightly golden so watch carefully.
