Recipe for oil pie crust mom makes: 8-9 inch one crust :
1 cup + 2Tbs flour; 1/2 tsp salt;
1/3 cup salad oil (corn oil) ;
2 to 3 Tbs cold water.
measure flour and salt into bowl; Add oil, mix until particles are size of small peas. Sprinkle in water 1 Tbs at a time, until flour is moistened and almost cleans side of bowl. Place flattened round between two pieces of wax paper. Roll dough 2 inches larger than pan.
Bake shell at 475.
For best results, Do not rework scraps! sprinkle them with sugar and cinnamon, lay out on cooky sheet to bake! a very tasty treat while you let the finished pie cool.
For a 10 inch one crust or 8-9inch two crust:
1 3/4 cup flour, 1tsp salt, 1/2cup salad oil, 3 to 4 Tbs cold water
Note; IIRC, all flour was sifted and exactly measured
Mother was once a chemist so her measurements were quite exact.
