Rich Flaky Vegan Pie Crust

Submitted by: SARAGRIFFIN

Introduction

Literally takes 5 minutes to prepare and is made with olive oil so it's heart healthy. You will NEVER go back to prepared crusts filled with preservatives after trying this. The bragging rights alone of 'homemade crust' are well worth it. This is a salted crust, suitable for quiches and the like - For a sweet crust, omit the salt and add a packet or two or Splenda.

Ingredients

    1 cup all-purpose flour
    1/4 cup olive oil
    1/4 cup cold water
    Salt to taste (1/4 teaspoon recomended)

Directions

Mix salt (or Splenda) into flour in one large bowl and whisk the olive oil and water briskly in another as you add it to the flour mixture. Obviously oil and water won't mix easily so keep whisking as you pour it into the flour! Knead until smooth, roll out into desired shape and place into pan. For best results, chill for an hour or so before baking.
Serves 4 HUGE pieces.

Number of Servings: 4
