Pat-in-pan Pie Crust

Author/Submitted by:
Servings: 1
Categories: Crust-Pie / Desserts / Pies & Pastries

1 1/2  c  plus 3 tbs all-purpose flour
1 1/2  ts  sugar
1/2  t  salt
1/2  c  vegetable oil
3  tb  cold milk

Place the flour, sugar, and salt in the pie pan and mix with your fingers until blended. In a measuring cup, combine the oil and milk and beat with a fork until creamy. Pour all at once over the flour mixture. Mix with a fork until the flour mixture is completely moistened. Pat the dough with your fingers, first up the sides of the plate, then across the bottom. Flute the edges. Shell is now ready to be filled. If you are preparing a shell to fill later, or your recipe requires a prebaked crust, preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Prick the surface of the pastry with a fork and bake 15 minutes, checking often, and pricking more if needed. VARIATION: For a 10-inch shell, use 2 cups all-purpose flour; 2 teaspoons sugar; 1 teaspoon salt; 2/3 cup vegetable oil; 3 tablespoons milk. "Quick, crisp but tender, it needs no rolling out. I highly recommend this pie crust, especially if you think you can't make a good pie. This recipe can only be used for one-crust pies - you CAN'T double the recipe and roll out a top crust. The mixture is just too tender to transfer from the pastry board or cloth to the pie." (Marcia Adams) Cooking from Quilt Country - Hearty Recipes from Amish and Mennonite Kitchens by Marcia Adams.
