Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. In a food processor, whirl flour, sugar and salt together until well mixed. Break up frozen grapeseed oil and combine with flour mixture. Whirl together until it looks like cornmeal. Gradually pour in water adding just enough to allow for dough to form a ball.
  3. Immediately press dough into pie pan. Cover and refrigerate any leftover dough. Wrap pie crust edges with foil and bake for 10 to 15 minutes. Use with your favorite pie recipe.

I have to wonder about some recipes; if people really have tried them as stated, or if they tend to not work with a recipe at all, and they just sort of guess at the quantities in these recipes and write down anything if asked for a recipe. Well, my experience with this grapeseed crust was less than stellar. Firstly, the grapeseed oil never froze to any degree of hardness at all. I left it in my freezer for 24 hours too(my freezer does work). It stayed a cold, thick liquid. Ok, bad for a flakey pie crust. Secondly, 3/4 cup oil was way to much oil for the amount of dry ingredients.

Grapeola grape seed oil can be purchased on ebay if you can't find it elsewhere.
