Never Fail Pie Crust

Comment on this recipe

It makes a very light and flaky pie crust. I made up to 25 pies a day at one time using this recipe.

Ingredients

2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup tap water (not too cold or hot)

Instructions

Place flour, salt and baking powder in bowl. Mix up with fork. Add oil and water to flour mixture and stir well. Dough will form into ball and leaves sides of bowls. (I use stainless steel bowl). Divide dough into two equal balls. Roll out each piece between wax paper. Use no other flour than first two cups. You may double and increase this recipe as you please.
