Where's the pie dough recipe?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Country Families : One Thread

I always was the world's worst procrastinator!! I, of course, have waited until baking day to look for the pie dough recipe:o)

What I am looking for is, someone on this forum mentioned a pie dough recipe using oil instead of shortening. I am in a sort of hurry, so I didn't look at each and every thread in the recipe category. If any body knows where it is, or knows the recipe, please tell me. I will be baking again on Friday for another Thanksgiving dinner on Saturday (yes, we're having two dinners this week:o)), so if it doesn't show up today, that's okay.

Thanks a bunch!

Another recipe that I found on the internet. Hope it's what you're looking for! My mom always made pie crusts this way, and they were always wonderful.
