Pies are my favorite dessert. Give me a choice between cake and pie in flavors I like 99% of the time pie wins. Even savory pies like pot pie and quiche are delicious  as well.

The foundation for most pies is a crust but making homemade crust scares a lot of people. This recipe is easy  enough a child could make it. Seriously. You mix together the flour, salt, milk, and oil in a bowl before patting the crust in your pie plate or tin.

If you’re making a cream pie you poke a few holes in the crust and bake until golden or fill and bake according to the recipe for fruit pies like apple.

I have a traditional pie crust recipe that is delicious but has a ton of steps. I don’t always have the time or inclination to mess with it but this no roll pie crust comes together in a jiffy.

If you’re looking for a recipe or two to fill your pie crust I recommend Peanut Butterscotch Pie, Banana and Pistachio Pudding Pie, or Coconut Cream Pie.
