Homemade pie crust

For 1 crust
1 ¼ cups flour
1/8 tsp salt
¼ cup vegetable oil
3 tbsp cold water

For 2 crusts
2 1/3 cups flour
¼ tsp salt
½ cup cold water

Mix all ingredients. You can add up to an additional 1 tbsp of water if needed.

Bake as directed in recipe.
Results: very good. My spices were parsley and Chives. And I used 1 of the planned uses for the whole boneless ham I bought for the Jan $16 challenge.
