Recipe: Easy Pie Crust Recipe

Hello there!

Today I will be sharing with you an uber easy pie crust recipe. No rolling pin needed! It's almost impossible to mess up. Without further ado, let's jump right into it.

1/2 tablespoon of butter
1/4 cup of plain flour

(Pie crust)
1 1/2 cups plain flour
2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 an egg, beaten


01. Pre-heat the oven at 200 degrees Celsius for 20 minutes.

02. Spread the butter all over the interior of your baking pan. Then dust 1/4 cup of flour over the same surface.

03.Make sure the whole surface of the interior is covered. Discard the excess flour.

04. Mix the 1 1/2 cups of flour, salt and sugar together in a bowl.

05. Add the milk, egg and vegetable oil into the dry ingredients and incorporate everything together.

06. Transfer the dough into the baking pan and press the dough to it's sides and bottom.

07. Poke holes all over the dough using a fork.

08. Bake for 15 minutes at the pre-heated temperature. It will be half-baked and ready to use as your pie recipe requires.


01. It is important to mix the dry ingredients FIRST before adding in the wet ingredients. This ensures the even distribution of sugar and salt throughout the dough.

02. The best baking pan size is a 9". However you can always double the recipe for a bigger pan. You can also do as I did and just line the pan half-way with dough as in the photo below.

So there you go. Do give this recipe a try. It's so delicious!

Good luck and see you in the next post. Cheers!
