Easy and Delicious Pie Crust

on October 2, 2013

Hello Everyone!

Thanksgiving is soon approaching so today I have an easy pie crust recipe! This recipe comes from my Grandmother and it is so versatile. We make pies, fruit pies, quiches, casseroles– anything that calls for a pie crust! But we have been craving pumpkin pie and at first I was worried that if we had it now we wouldn’t want it on Thanksgiving but really, who would get tired of pie?

What I love about this crust is that it has 5 ingredients and it requires NO rolling out!!!! Or chilling…. It’s so annoying when you want a pie and you want it now but the crust is holding you back because it has to chill for 2 hours…. the frustrations of a baker….. 😉 And when you make a homemade crust you always feel good about your pies!

Easy Mazola Pie Crust
Makes 1 9″ pie crust


1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
1/2 cup oil
2 Tbs milk


1) Sift together the flour, salt, and sugar in medium bowl.


2) With a fork whip together the oil and milk. Then pour into the dry ingredients and mix until crumbly.


3) Press with fingers into 9″ pie plate.


4) Bake at 450 for 10-12 minutes.*

Here is the finished product with a yummy pumpkin filling!


*If a recipe calls for a baked pie crust then go ahead and bake it but if it calls for unbaked then it works just fine for that too. 🙂

Isn’t that a cute dollop of Whipped cream? Its so pretty….Here’s what my pie would really look like though if I was just eating it…. Equal parts crust, filling, and whipped cream…..
