Pie Crust

Easy Push-In Pie Crust
Makes one crust
Prep time: 10 minutes or less
  • 1-1/2 cups flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
Measure the above ingredients right into an 8 or 9 inch pie pan and mix with a fork.  Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and add:
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil  (or vegetable oil)
  • 1/4 cup milk (decrease milk to 2 tablespoons if you are using vegetable oil)
Using your hands, mix all ingredients until  ingredients are evenly dispersed and you can form the dough into a ball.  If your dough looks very crumbly, you can add a dab more milk to help everything stick together.  But don’t overdo the milk.  Once everything is well combined, your dough should feel smooth and a little oily, not sticky.
Press the dough out towards the edges of the pan, working it until the entire pan is covered.  This step will take several minutes, especially the first time you make this recipe.  But once you’ve done it a time or two, you’ll find that you can form a crust in  less than 5 minutes. At this point you can treat your crust just like you would any piecrust
