  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...

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 pie crust for my chicken pot pie. It was great. My grandchildren loved it.. YEAH!!!

Thanks so much for this recipe. I had thawed what I thought was a double crust and was making an apple pie. This was so easy, worked perfectly and tasted great.

It turn out very good considering I didn't have milk, so I used water. This was the first time I ever made pie crust

Perfect for homemade apple pies in my opinion
