A pastry recipe calling for neither butter nor shortening, but oil instead.


  1. Mix flour and salt together, then gently mix in oil, then water, with a fork.
  2. Mixture should be moist.
  3. Place half the dough on a sheet of wax paper (if you slightly dampen the bottom of the wax paper it won't slide around on the countertop) and cover the dough with a second sheet of wax paper.
  4. With a rolling pin, roll the dough out to fit your pie plate.
  5. Peel off the top layer of wax paper; place pie plate over pastry and invert so pie dough is evenly in pan.
  6. Pull off the wax paper and trim dough.
  7. This recipe makes two pie crusts.
