Re: Pie crust???? - I may have something for you...

NK - Well, I went through some of my low fat cookbooks and here's what I came up with. I haven't tried any of these, so please let us know how they came out.


1.5 c unbleached all purpose flour
1 tsp sugar
6 tbsp polyunsaturated margerine chilled
1 egg white, lightly beaten

Sift flour and sugar into mixing bowl. Add the margerine and rub it into the dry ingred w/your fingertips until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add egg white mixing it in w/wooden spoon to form a dough. Gather the dough into a firmm ball, and knead it briefly onn a lightly floured surface until it is smooth. DO NOT OBERWORK THE DOUGH OR IT WILL BECOME OILY AND THE BAKED PASTRY WILL BE TOUGH. Roll out the dough as required.

This recipe makes 9 oz and takes about 10 minutes. It may be stored tightly covered w/plastic wrap in fridge up to one week, or in freezer up to 3 mos.

Taken from Fresh Ways with Pastries & Sweets, Time-Life Books Healthy Home Cooking, Alexandria, VA.

Apparently, those of us watching our fat intake are not supposed to eat pie crusts--that sucks!

Anyway, this is what I could come up with. Don't know if any of them will suit your needs, but I tried.

I think I was away when you signed onto the board. Considering your logon name, do you bake a lot?
