Oil Pastry (Pie Crust)
Pumpkin, pecan, apple, banana....the possibilities are endless!
Yield: 2 9-inch pie pastries
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Bake Time: 10 to 12 minutes

2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
2/3 cup Mazola® Corn Oil
6 tablespoons cold water

Mix flour and salt in large mixing bowl. Pour oil and water into measuring cup - do not stir. Add liquids all at once to flour mixture. Stir with a fork until just moistened. Divide dough into 2 balls.

Roll each ball between 2 sheets of wax paper, forming a circle approximately 12 inches in diameter. Note: Dampen work area by wiping with a wet dish cloth to prevent wax paper from slipping. Remove top sheet of wax paper; place hand under bottom sheet of paper and invert pastry into a pie plate, paper side up. Carefully remove paper while gently fitting pastry into plate (take care not to stretch pastry, as this will cause shrinkage). Trim pastry 1/2 inch beyond edge of pie plate; fold extra pastry under (even with edge of pie plate). Flute edge using tines of fork or by creating a scallop pattern using fingers.

Bake as directed in pie recipe. If recipe calls for a baked pie crust, generously prick bottom and sides of pastry with a fork. Bake at 400°F for 10 to 12 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool on wire rack before filling.

NOTE: Makes 2 9-inch single crust pie pastries OR 1 double crust pie pastry.  Prepared pastry can be refrigerated or frozen in a tightly closed container.
