The store brand: Harris Teeter Refrigerated Pie Dough (store brand)
My Recipe (from http://whatscookingamerica.net/piecrst.htm):
2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
- Mix the flour and salt together in a large bowl.
- Measure the vegetable oil and the milk into the same liquid measuring cup but do not stir.
- Add to the flour/salt mixture; mix briskly to combine until the dough comes together into a ball.
So, how did it go? It was laughable. The dough was so crumbly that it would never make a pie shell. So instead, I did some little tarts with half the dough:
But the dough burnt and was really hard when they were done.
The other half I added some water to and did a bottom pie crust (the bottom pie - I just made a crumb topping):
The top crust is the store brand. It was SO easy. And tasted so much better - the oil crust was just hard and awful.
It was so bad/sad that I didn't even photograph the final product! UGH. The pie crust will be revisited, but for now...
Bake or Buy? BUY!
