Chef Lauren’s Easy Olive Oil Pie Crust

IMG_5540

Ingredients:

2/3 cup of We Olive Mission Extra Virgin Olive Oil 

1/3 cup of water

2 cups of All Purpose Flour

1 Teaspoon of salt

Directions:

Whisk 2/3 cup of Olive oil and 1/3 cup of water with fork for 2-3 minutes until emulsified. You will know it is ready when Olive Oil and water have become one and created a cloudy appearance. 

Add salt and flour continue mixing with fork. Spread on floured cutting board to finish combining by hand. Once mixture becomes tacky and well combined wrap in plastic wrap and place in fridge for 10 minutes. 

Roll out with floured rolling pin to desired shape. Once you have lined pie pan or tart pan with dough pierce crust with fork all over and bake for 15 minutes at 350 degrees to encourage a crispy and flaky crust. Then use desired filling. Should make enough dough for bottom of pie crust and top.
