Mix in the Pan Pie Crust ~Quick and Easy!~
*The canning tutorial is being postponed. I will have it up this weekend. I got a spark of inspiration in the middle of the night last night which resulted in me singing Harry Connick Jr to myself at precisely 2:36 AM and yes, I swear, it has a lot to do with the canning tutorial!
This is just one of my basic recipes that has come in handy for me on several occasions. I am HUGE fan of storebought pie crusts! Of course, we can make them at home but I just don’t have the time or desire to go to the trouble to make a proper pastry most days. Thats where this pie crust comes in!
This is easy peasy – it doesn’t even dirty up a bowl because you mix it all up in the pie pan! I love the flavor of it as well. This goes great for good old fashioned pies.
You will need: Flour, sugar, salt, vegetable oil, and a wee bit of milk
Place salt, sugar, and flour into pie plate
Stir those together.
Now add your oil and milk and stir. I don’t have a pic of adding those in because…..well I just don’t have a pic. I might explain why in a later tutorial. Then again, I might not. Maybe that will make me more mysterious and such to you and you’ll all think I’m cool or something (instead of scatterbrained).
Stir together until it kind of forms a ball or “wad”. I guess “forms a ball” sounds better though.
GREAT JOB!!! (can you tell I’m a mother?). now just pat that ball out, first to fit the bottom of your pan, then keep on patting until it goes up the sides.
Like this! VOILA! Mix in pan pie crust! All ya gotta do now is bake at 350 for about ten minutes and you’re ready to fill!
Now you didn’t think I was going to give you a pie crust and not give you something good to put in it, did ya? Puleeeeeze! You know me better than that!!!
