Easy Pie Crust Recipe

A sweet aroma of homemade pie is filling the house as I’m writing this post.  I simply couldn’t resist the temptation of leaving right in the middle of my post for today to go and bake a pie!  I guess that’s why the recipe is called Easy Pie Crust.  Now that my pie is cooling by the window, I’ll continue with my post till it’s ready to be served.  I think this is the hardest part of the recipe; waiting to have a bite!  🙂

When I found this recipe on Allrecipes.com, I wasn’t sure whether this pie crust will turn out as good as a traditional pie crust made of butter.  But I’m glad I tried it.  This is the third time I’m using this recipe and it’s absolutely amazing; perfect for a quick and easy pie!  You can use this crust both for sweet or savoury pies.


  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 5 tsp sugar ( for sweet pies )
  • 1 tsp salt ( for savoury pies)
  • 1/3 – 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 tbsp milk


  • Adjust the amount of sugar and salt to your taste.  For savoury pies, you can add in herbs and spices to the crust.  I usually add in ground cinnamon when making sweet pies.  You may as well use some finely chopped nuts.  🙂
  • The dough might break while handling but simply press it down in your pie dish; it’ll be perfect once baked.  Avoid adding in too much oil else you end up with a crust which is too crumbly.


  1. Preheat your oven to 200 degrees C.
  2. Stir together all the dry ingredients.  Add in the oil and mix.  Add the milk to form a dough. 
  3. You can mix the ingredients directly in a 9 inch pie pan and the press down the dough to shape your pie crust.  The dough can be rolled out as well and then transferred to your pie dish.  I find it easy to roll out the dough between two sheets of kitchen paper and the turn it over in my pie dish.
  4. Using a fork poke holes in bottom and side of crust.  Bake for 15 minutes in the preheated oven.  Use as directed in desired pie recipe.

Here’s the banana pie I baked today!  🙂  I’ll share the recipe for banana pie very soon in another post.  Right now I’m going to have a slice of this delicious pie with a warm cup of tea.  It’s already past tea time but I definitely can’t wait till after dinner.  🙂
