This recipe comes from the Betty Crocker's Cookbook. "The Big Red Cookbook" I was making a strawberry pie and I didn't feel like rolling out pastry dough, so I decided to use this recipe. It was super easy and very fast to put together, great for a weeknight.
- 1 1⁄3 cups all-purpose flour or 1 1⁄3 cups unbleached flour
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄3 cup vegetable oil
- 2 tablespoons cold water
- Mix flour, salt and oil until all flour is moistened. Sprinkle with cold water, 1 tablespoon at a time, tossing with fork until all water is absorbed.
- Gather pastry into a ball. Press in bottom and up side of pie plate, 9x1 1/4 inches; flute.
- Fill and bake as directed in pie recipe or bake before filling is added. Heat oven to 475°F Prick bottom and side of pastry thoroughly with fork. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until light brown; cool on wire rack.
I used this for a quiche. It is great, easy and tasty.
