This is by far the flakiest pie crust I ever tried. Light, crumbly, flaky
Who would guess that you could make a really flaky pie crust with canola oil? That’s right frozen canola oil! It’s so easy you have to give it a try. This crust has a neutral flavour that works well with any fruit pie. Just as tasty many days later when stored in the refrigerator. I’m going to be honest, this is the pie crust for me. Light, very flaky and melt-in-your mouth.
