This is my take on a press-in pie crust, based on this recipe. This is not going to be a flaky type crust - but it is very simple to do, quick, and means you can say you truly made a from-scratch pie!
Step 1: Ingredients
You will need:
> 1.5 cups flour
> 1 teaspoon salt
> 1.5 teaspoon granulated sugar
> 0.5 teaspoon cinnamon
> 0.25 teaspoon vanilla extract
> 0.5 cup oil (I used coconut oil)
> 2 tablespoons milk
> 1 pie plate/tin
> sundry measuring cups/spoons
> fork or something with small tines to prick the dough
> an oven pre-heated to 425 degrees Fahrenheit
Step 2: Measure out your ingredients
Then, measure in your oil, milk, and vanilla.
Step 3: Mix the dough
I was able to do this by hand. I first used one hand to sort of stir it so most of the flour got exposed to liquid. When it started balling up a little, I used both hands to smoosh it together. When it actually came together at the point in the picture, the goop on my hand from the initial stirring came right off :)
This is very easy to mix, it probably took less than 3 minutes to go from measured ingredients to this point. Do note, though, that it is on the crumbly side when it is all mixed - it will stick when pushed together but it won't form a cohesive ball like say bread dough.
