This is one of the easiest pie crusts in the world to make. It was handed down from our writer’s grandmother and it’s the only pie crust she’s ever made.
- 2 cups flour
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon baking powder
- ½ olive or coconut oil
- ¼ cup water
Mix dry ingredients. Add the water and oil and mix with a fork. Roll out between two sheets of waxed paper.
You can also make this crust directly in the pie pan if that’s more your jam. Put the dry ingredients in the pie pan, mix. Add the water and oil and mix with your hands or a fork until combined. Using the palm of your hand and your fingers, work the dough out to cover the bottom, sides and rim. Crimp around the rim if you like.
