    This is Mom's pie crust. I've never seen a flakier crust anywhere. This is so easy it just makes other crusts seem like work.

      I have made this many times now and shared it many more. To simplify even more, I heat the water and oil in a saucepan, remove from heat and add self-rising flour, stirring until it makes a ball (less than a minute.) I divide in half and make 2 bottom crusts by pressing into pie plates. NO ROLLING! Tastes the same---delicious. I am so glad I found this recipe. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

      This is my Mom's pie crust recipe too! I grew up eating and making this, and to this day if I need a quick pie crust for a chicken pot pie OR a dessert this is my old standby. I love it because I don't have to roll anything out. My Mom uses 1 1/2 c flour and 1/2 tsp of salt and stirs it in the pie plate. Then she uses a glass measuring cup and adds 1/3 c oil and enough water to make 1/2 c total and pours it into the pie plate.
