Easy Flaky Oil Pie Crust

5 from 20 reviews

This tender, flaky, melt-in-your-mouth pie crust is made with just 4 simple ingredients and only takes 15 minutes to prepare.



  1. Sift the flour twice, then whisk in the salt and create a little well.
  2. Pour in the oil, then milk and stir everything together. If the dough seems too dry, add 1-2 tbsp of milk.
  3. Once the dough starts to form, finish working it by gently kneading it on a sheet of wax paper.
  4. Divide into two parts. Roll the dough out in between 2 sheets of wax paper. Remove the top sheet of wax paper. Use the bottom sheet to lift and flip the dough onto the pie plate and on top of the filling.
  5. Trim and seal edges. Cut some slits for ventilation.
  6. Bake in a preheated oven at 425F for 15 minutes, then bake at 375F until the crust is golden and filling is cooked. Usually about another 30-45 minutes.
