  1. Sift flour and salt into a bowl. Pour vegetable oil into a 1-cup measure and fill the measure with milk up to the 7-ounce mark. Whisk oil and milk together and pour immediately into the bowl with flour. Mix the crust together with a fork just until it holds together. Do not knead.
  2. Divide crust in half, form into balls, and roll each half out between sheets of waxed paper. Peel waxed paper from crusts to fit into pie plate.

I halved the recipe, b/c I wanted to use a crumb topping. The crust tasted fine, but I had to roll it extremely thin for it to cover my 9" glass pie plate. I prebaked this for 7 minutes on 425 before adding my fruit filling.

I halved this recipe to make a pumpkin pie. I really needed a little more crust because it didn't spread far enough up the side of my pie plate. It was easy enough for a novice pie crust maker to make, so I would probably make it again.

Actually this recipe did not work for me until I compared it to some others and decided to try adding an egg. After adding one egg, the mixture came together instead of just crumbling.

I used this to make a pumpkin pie. It tasted fine, but it was impossible to roll and work with. Half wasn't enough, and I ended Up using all of it. It was really thick, but it tasted great.
