I really like this pie crust for pot pie because it’s tasty, flaky and really easy to make.
Start with some flour.
Add some salt.
Add oil and water.
Mix it together until the bowl sides are clean.
Break into two equal parts.
Place wax paper above and below.
Make sure you make this before hand and let the rolled out dough sit for a bit before you place it in the pan. I have had had trouble with it sticking to the wax sheets if I try and take it off too soon. Then it becomes more of a crumble crust. It still works it just isn’t as pretty.
