"Ran out of solid shortening and this worked great! Thanks!"
"This is a very good pie crust!! It came out crispy but tender. I cannot make "pretty" crusts so this was perfect for me. This will be my new crust to make!! Made for Fall 2009 PAC."
"If we had 10 stars I would give it for this pie crust. It is the best!!! Please everyone try it. I went exactly by the recipe and it was perfect!!"
"i am really not good with rolling things out and making them look pretty so this was perfect for me. super easy and good tasting! what more could i want?"
"This has to be the easiest and best pie crust anywhere. I think even a child could make it. My family has always loved the pies I have made with solid shortening, but this Canola Oil Crust got rave reviews from them."
"I use this recipe whenever I need a crust, whether it is for a dessert, quiche, or other dish. It is really simple to make, so why even buy pie crusts from the store?"
"I have never used sugar in this recipe before and thought it was a welcome addition. I made a deep dish pumpkin pie today which holds 8 cups of pumpkin! I had a baseball size amount of crust left over, so this recipe makes a good amount of crust. The only thing I would add is that if you want to roll it out, place two layers of plastic wrap out on your counter, put the mound of crust in the middle and flatten with your hands. Then, put another two layers of plastic wrap over it. This will allow you to use your dough roller to make a very smooth, thin crust. When you are ready to transfer it to your pie plate, remove the top layer of plastic wrap from the crust and then flip it over into your pie plate. Peel the plastic wrap off the top and then use your fingers to "fix" any pieces that may have broken or cracked. Using plastic wrap allows you to form your crust with out re-rolling and making the crust tough. You do not need any additional flour and it is all done and taken care of in a few minutes. You will want to make pie crust more often if you can do it with ease! Thanks for this! KCShell"
