No Fail Pie Crust

Thank you Aunt Whitney for the pie crust recipe! It’s so easy I will never use another. This recipe makes two two crusts but I really like thicker crusts so if you’re ever wanting to know what exactly I did in my recipes, I double this so it makes two thick crusts.


Isn’t my cat rolling pin so cute? Ceth got it for me. Yes, the perfect gift-giver Ceth.


I was making my Chicken Pot Pie recipe in this picture. (

Never Fail Oil Crust:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup ice cold water
  1. In a bowl combine the oil and water and stir until foamy. Add in the salt and mix. Mix in the flour all at once until all the flour is dampened. Divide into two balls and roll out until desired thickness and shape. Store in fridge. Poke holes in the bottom of the crust with a fork when ready to bake.

Short and sweet blog post!

    I thought pie crust had to be made with frozen butter! Is the oil you used liquid or solid?
