SO HOW'D IT GO?

AWESOME MAN  ;)b made it with quiche.

I agree though, probably not a good combination with a sweet pie.... probably better with dinner pies.

I thought this worked pretty well for the 'Spaghetti pie' recipe. I used whole wheat pastry flour and chilled the dough before rolling it out. Mine definitely doesn't look perfect, but it tasted pretty good, and it was definitely easy to mix together. I baked my bottom crust first, added fillings, used a top crust, and baked. I'll keep this in mind for when I need a crust!

I used this for the Thanksgiving pecan pie.  Instead of olive oil, I used veggie oil with a T of sugar (as DRA88 suggested) and 1/2 whole wheat flour.  My non-veg family thought it was great.

Ended up with enough dough for two pies, so I froze half of it and used it later for a pot pie.  It froze fine, but was a bit more "crumbly" upon thawing...

can this pie crust be used for like "meat" pies??

i don't see why not.. it's definitely more a crust for a savory dish over a sweet, fruit type one.

I made this last night for Sonya's Mushroom Pot Pie. It was the perfect crust for it! I was nervous picking a pie crust off the site because most people like very light flaky crusts but I like the ones that are softer and doughier with a little bit of flake. This crust was all that and delicious, even though it was so simple! I upped the recipe a bit (eyeballing it) because I like to have a thicker crust in pot pies to soak up all the good tastes, and sprinkled salt on after a rolled both pieces out. Before I put it in the oven I brushed melted EB on it, but it didn't really help it to brown much. Oh well. I also cooked it at 350 for half an hour because I didn't want to wait so long  8)

It was a bit messy to roll out but the end result was worth it completely. Now if I cook this the way I was supposed to and up the temp at the end, will it REALLY help it brown? I've never gotten a vegan pie crust to brown.

can't beat it for the simplicity of it.  i halved it for a quiche and used ww flour.  it was pretty oily and after i got it into the pie pan i used a paper towel to blot a little of the excess oil off the top of the dough before i prebaked it.  i'd definitely use it again over running out to buy one with a million preservatives.  thanks!

I used this recipe for a fresh strawberry pie and was really disappointed!!!!  The crust, itself, wasn't that bad, but the flavor DID NOT go well with the sweetness of the berries!!!  Maybe it would be better for a pot pie or something.  Next time i'll try it with a different kind of oil.

for a pie that's going to be sweet, try the suggestion that I posted before or instead of olive oil, replace it with corn oil with a tablespooon of sugar.
