"This recipe has been handed down for over 80 years, I'm told. It makes the flakiest crust ever! Surprisingly, it is made with oil, not lard. This is a must-try."

1 3/4 cups
3 1/2 tablespoons
it was good but hard to keep together i added alitttle more water.. rolled it out on floured board but it didnt make 2 crust pie.. it was more like 1 single crust size. but came out good
I had to make another. It was a terrible crust
The crust was very difficult to keep together so I ended up having to form it in the pie plate. I also added an extra tablespoon of water. Over all it was very good and worked very well for my pumpkin pie!
This was also my mother's recipe passed down from her grandmother. She used oil when she ran out of lard and never went back! It's a tried and true recipe.
This is a perfect crust!!! My son has food allergies...I was looking for a recipe that uses canola oil...With this recipe, I am able to make homemade fruit and cream, chicken and turkey pot pies, ect...Flaky crust every time!!!
the only thing I would add is to roll it out between wax paper. Makes it so much easyer to work with.
My 12 year old granddaughter
made it and did and AWESOME job.
It came out very flakey.
