Pie Crust

I find this oil based pie crust easier to work with than with solid shortening. And it seems to stay flaky through more handling.

1 1/3 c Flour
1/3 c Oil
2 T Water,Cold

Add oil to flour and mix well with fork. Sprinkle water over and mix well. With hands press into ball and flatten. Roll between two pieces in waxed paper. Remove top waxed paper, invert over pan and remove other paper. Press into place. For pies which do not require a baked filling, bake at 400 until lighted browned, about 12-15 minutes.
