    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    9-inch/ ...

    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 1/2 cups flour
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
    • 2/3 cup vegetable oil (Mazola Veg Plus)
    • 6 tablespoons cold water

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Mix flour and salt in large mixing bowl. Pour oil and water into measuring cup - do not stir. Add liquids all at once to flour mixture. Stir with a fork until just moistened. Divide dough into 2 balls.
    2. 2
      Roll each ball between 2 sheets of wax paper, forming a circle approximately 12 inches/30cm in diameter. Note: Dampen work area by wiping with a wet dish cloth to prevent wax paper from slipping. Remove top sheet of wax paper; place hand under bottom sheet of paper and invert pastry into a pie plate, paper side up. Carefully remove paper while gently fitting pastry into plate (take care not to stretch pastry, as this will cause shrinkage). Trim pastry 1/2 inch/1cm beyond edge of pie plate; fold extra pastry under (even with edge of pie plate). Flute edge using tines of fork or by creating a scallop pattern using fingers.
    3. 3
      Bake as directed in pie recipe. If recipe calls for a baked pie crust, generously prick bottom and sides of pastry with a fork. Bake at 400°F/200°C for 10 to 12 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool on wire rack before filling.
