Easy Press in Pan Pie Crust

  • Add flour and salt together in a medium bowl and mix.
  • In a smaller bowl, whisk the oil with the water until it becomes light in colour.
  • Right away, pour the entire water/olive oil mixture into the bowl of flour.
  • Stir with a for until the flour is mixed in with the liquids.
  • Gather the dough together with your hands until it holds together. If more water is needed carefully add a teaspoon more water at a time. You do not want the dough to be too wet or it won't press together in the pan. (Your dough will be crumbly but it will come together when pressed in the pie pan).
  • Dump the dough into your pie plate and press gently until it covers the pan evenly.
  • Fill with filling of choice and bake immediately at 400F for approximately 25-30 minutes.
  • Alternatively, keep crust in the fridge until you want to use it. Do not leave it unbaked with a filling in it or it will become soggy.


For a dessert crust add 1 Tablespoon coconut or vegan sugar.
