According to Lori, this is the pie that put her grandmother into a diabetic coma. So you have been warned! It is so delicious, but a slice is best shared-- for happiness as well as your health!
Pastry Pie Crust:
3 c. flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp baking powder
1 egg beaten with 1 tsp vinegar
1 c. oil
1/4-1/2 c. ice water
Mix dry ingredients, then add wet ones. Mix well. This crust is very oily and difficult to roll out. You can just press it into the pie pan with your fingers. If cooking unfilled, bake at 350 degrees just until the top edges turn a light brown.
