No-Roll 5-Minute Pie Crust

Suzanne invited me to share recipes on this blog and I am happy to do so. Here's my first post, thanks for having me here!

This recipe has been a welcome addition to my kitchen for a few reasons. The first being, it is healthy. We have cut out most trans fats and high fructose corn syrup foods in our house. The boxed pie crusts at the store have trans fats and are pricey...around $2.50 for a box of 2. The second reason, it is quick and easy....and tastes good too! The third reason I already mentioned...this is a whole lot cheaper to prepare...probably a few cents.

I have only used this recipe for quiche recipes and it is not a pie crust for topping a pie. I have not tried freezing it either but would think it would do well already baked with a filling.

1 c whole wheat flour (or all purpose)
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 c canola oil
1/4 c ice water

Mix flour and salt with a fork.
Whisk together oil and water and pour into flour mixture. Mix with a fork.
Press into 9" pie plate.
Fill with your favorite filling and bake @ 400 until done.

I will have to try that soon! Much cheaper than store bought and I love that it does not need to be rolled! I loved your chicken and wild rice soup from last week. YUMMY!
