I love eating savoury pies and tarts but kneading is not my favourite task, plus leaves me a messy kitchen to clean after! So, when I found this recipe last week, I knew that I have to try it out immediately :)
The dough was indeed easy to prepare and ready in minutes. The taste though was a bit greasy ; perhaps I should have paired it with lighter fillings. Anyway, I'll still use this pie crust recipe again , noting to add oil gradually and blind bake for 10 minutes before adding the fillings.
No-Roll Pie Crust
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup peanut oil (used canola oil instead)
1/4 cup ice water
1/2 teaspoon salt
Pre-heat oven at medium heat.
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Place dough in the pie pan, and press it out evenly with your fingers. Fill with favorite pie filling and bake.
Used 21cm dia. baking dish, and it was too small
To add oil gradually the next time.
To blind bake for 10 minutes before adding the fillings.
