- 1/3 cup cooking oil
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 cup self-rising flour
- Bring cooking oil and water to boil in a small saucepan -- it takes just a few seconds! Then remove from heat.
- Add 1 cup flour and stir. It will quickly pull away from the pan and form a ball. Don't overstir.
- Place into a pie plate (non-greased) and wait a few minutes for it to cool enough so you can touch it with your fingers.
- Press out evenly into the pan, pushing it up the sides with your fingers. Pinch a decorative edge. That's it!
We like to prebake for a few minutes for a cooked pie. Bake completely for a cream pie. A perfect recipe for this crust is French Coconut Pie
