VERY GOOD! The simplicity of the recipe concerned me ... no sugar, no milk, etc. but I tried it as is only substituting peanut oil with canola oil and olive oil mixture.
Pressing it to the pan took awhile for me since I was very concerned about it being even throughout. I then stuck it in the freezer while I worked on my apple pie filling. When I took
it out of the freezer it was rather dry and hard looking.
Like the other reviewers, I was impressed with the result. It only did not get a five star because there was a very "pressed" feel to the crust and was not the light flakey taste but hey, it's not that kind of recipe.
And also, that may be me pressing it too much trying to get it evenly distributed.
The crust turned out crispy and tasty. I will use this recipe again even when I do get my rolling pin back. (I may try rolling it next time to save time on pressing).
I used to buy Marie Callendar's premade crust which was excellent but gets pricey and inconvenient. I'll be doing this instead when in a pinch and don't feel like rolling out a crust.
