Easy Schmeasy Pie Crust
Make this right in the plate no rolling! (Yippee! Your dog could make this, but always remember wash your dog's paws, first -- A Very Helpful Cooking Tip!! lol!)
1 ½ cups All-Purpose Flour
2 tbsp. Sugar
Quick Dash of Salt
½ cup Vegetable Oil
2 tbsp. Milk
Step 1: Mix the Dry Ingredients directly in the Pie Plate. Draw a little circle in the middle with your finger. (I can't help myself -- I always add a smiley face in the middle!)
Step 2: Pour the Oil and milk into a jar and put the lid on tightly. Give it a good shake. (This part keeps the Recipe Low in Cholesterol and much more 'Heart-Healthy' than using Lard or anything else to make the Pie Shell.)
Pour this mixture into the circle and mix it gently with a fork until completely blended. (See, there's the smiley face! lol!)
Step 3: Press the Pastry against the sides of the Pie Plate, first, then fill in the bottom.
You can Bake this at 400 degrees F. for about 15 minutes if you need a baked shell, or just go ahead and fill it with any fresh or frozen berries and bake for about 45 minutes at 350 Degrees for a Filled Pie Shell..
A really easy way to make a nice Fruit Pie is to put the prepared fruit in a bowl and stir in a Half a Cup of Flour with a Half a Cup of Sugar (mixed together), and itll automatically make its own sauce.

Take about 2 Tablespoons of the Flour & Sugar Mixture, and shake it on the bottom of the pie shell. That'll prevent the Juices from being Runny.
I actually substituted my favorite new Barley Flour for the Regular Flour for this Pie Shell, to make it a little healthier. You can try that, too, to see if you like it. It was tasty, but I think I'll just use Regular Flour from now on...
Clean the Berries, then add in the Flour & Sugar Mixture.
Pour the Berries into the Pie Shell, and bake at 350 Degrees for about an hour. I always use an AirBake Cookie Sheet to prevent any Baking from burning. It'll catch any Fruit Juices that happen to bubble over, too, which will keep your Oven clean!
Since I use very little Sugar and No Topping on this Blueberry Tart (or any Tart...), it seems very reasonable to top the pie off with some nice Whip Cream!
See ya' Later, Baby! Ailsa!!
