2 easy pie crust recipes

Pie season is upon us now and believe it or not you can make your own pie crust in a jiffy! Sure, we can buy them already made, but making the pie crust yourself will save you money and truly takes just a few minutes.
In my humble opinion, having a rustic looking pie crust makes the pie look as if it was made with love and after all, doesn't love make all things better?

Pie Crust 1

Makes 1 crust
  • 1 cup, plus 2 Tbsp. unsifted flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup oil (any vegetable oil)
  • 2 Tbsp water

Mix all ingredients together.
Form into a ball.
Roll out between 2 pieces of wax paper.

Pie Crust 2

Makes 1 crust
  • 1 stick margarine or butter (salted), cut into pieces
  • 1 cup flour
  • 4 to 6 Tbsp cold water
  • pinch of salt*

Combine all ingredients together in a large bowl.
Form into a ball.
Roll out between 2 pieces of wax paper.

* If you prefer a sweeter crust, add 1/2 tsp sugar and 1/2 tsp cinnamon to the dough prior to rolling. 

Tip: I like to leave the edges of my crust rustic looking...longer in some areas and a bit lumpy.
You can also cut off excess dough and press the edges with a fork for a uniform look.
