Pie Crust

If you’re afraid of making pie crust at home, it’s possible because you’ve been told all your life not to use too much water. Here’s a secret for you: enough cold water to give the dough coherence will save your sanity without hurting the flavor of the dish. Don’t be afraid to add an extra tablespoon or two if needed.

Looking for a nutritious filling? Spiced and lightly sweetened apples are a perennial favorite, of course, but we especially love this Vegetarian Pot Pie.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups flour
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ¾ cup canola oil
  • 2 tsp. vinegar
  • 5-6 Tbsp. ice water

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, stir together flour and salt.
  2. Whisk together oil, vinegar, and water. Add to flour and stir until mixture forms a ball. Place dough between 2 sheets of waxed paper to roll out.
  3. After placing dough in pie pan, chill until firm (15 minutes).

To use: bake unfilled pie shell in a 475ºF oven for 8-10 minutes. Bake filled pie according to pie recipe.
