Mix in the Pan Pie Crust ~Quick and Easy!~

Yum

 

*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!!!
Next up on the Southern Plate docket, Old Fashioned Lemon Chess Pie!

    I just made the crust. Was a little skeptical cuz I was making a mess on my counter, but I also was using a regular pie plate not a deep dish. Kept workin’ it and it came together great. Let it rest in frig about 10 mins. before blind baking in oven. Am making the tomato pie from ur site for the second time with this new crust recipe. Loved it before!! Thanks, I’m gonna use it in future and pass along!

    Christy, I wish you would always tell whether you use self-rising or all purpose flour in all of your recipes. I’m always afraid I’m using the wrong one. Thanks!! I LOVE your site and cook from it all the time!!

    Hi Christy :-)

    I usually use yams…maybe because the outside skin is darker in color thinking maybe more flavor or something? Lol! I dont know. I’m going to use sweet potatoes this time. I loooove sweet pototoe pie but mom doesn’t cook any more so its up to me. 😀

    Question: Can I use the easy pie pan crust that you have? If so, do I still need to bake the crust *before* filling it ? Thanks.

    Oh and Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family and everyone on this site. :-)

    made the crust twice now and it really was good, just wondering though was it suppose to be crumbly? it was horrible to a little too much I think, I didn’t use all the oil specified because the first time I made it it was to sticky and oily. also, wondering if I could substitute the oil with butter instead? thanks for this recipe though I failed every other time I tried making a homemade crust. bless you!!

    Thank you so much for this pie crust recipe. I am always needing a pie crust and no way to go to the store. lol. This has solved my problem. :)
    Love your website and all the delish recipes.

    you will noit answer the question of does it have to be baked?????????????making a apple pic…..i dont think i want to bake the crust… several people have asked… and nobody addresses this… thanks

    • says

      I’ll answer any question but with hundreds of comments a day some of them escape my notice. Unfortunately, I’m still waiting on my super powers to kick in :)
      It depends on the pie you are making. That recipe will tell you whether you use an unbaked or baked crust.

    This mix in the pan pie crust has saved my dinner so many times when I don’t have the time or counter space to roll one out! I have also forgotten to bake it first many times, or just skipped it when pressed for time and it always turned out fine for me.

  1. […] originally published March 15,2009 Yesterday was 3/14 or 3.14 which is known as Pi Day. In honor of that day I made one of my family’s favorite pies. This is a very rich pie so a little slice goes a long way. The best part of it is if you have a cookie crumb crust it’s a no bake pie. I didn’t have one so I made Christy’s Mix in the Pan Crust. […]
