No Roll Pie Crust… Now that’s my kind of crust. This particular crust is perfect for fruit cobblers, but I also like it for all sorts of pie.

This is another pie crust straight out of Grandma’s recipe box. I haven’t really changed a thing.

It’s an oil-based crust, so the texture is somewhat different. I would say it almost melts in your mouth, and it definitely has a flakiness about it.

What I really love about it, is that it’s really a no-fail pie crust. Anyone can make it. There’s no rolling or fluting required. Just mix it up and press it into a pie plate. And presto! You’ve got a pretty tasty pie crust. Game changer!

You can make a similar crust with butter and pecans. This pecan nut pie crust is another favorite, especially for no bake desserts, like this no bake pumpkin dessert and no bake blueberry dessert.

Tips for how to make an Easy Shortcut No-Roll Pie Crust

  • Mix together the flour, sugar, and salt.
  • In a separate bowl (or glass measuring cup), whip together the oil and milk with a fork.
  • Add the oil mixture to the dry ingredients, and stir together with a fork until the flour is all moistened.
  • If you’re making a fruit cobbler, save back about a third of the mixture to crumble on top of the pie.
  • Press the remaining dough evenly in a pie plate, covering the bottom and the sides.
  • If you want to crimp the edges, go right ahead. But there’s no need if you don’t want to.
  • And that’s it, your no-roll pie crust is ready for filling. Bake according to the instructions for whatever type of pie or cobbler you’re making.

Tools you may need to make a No-Roll Pie Crust

Mixing Bowl – I love a bowl with a handle; this one’s pretty similar to mine.

Measuring Spoons – I mean, measuring spoons. Every kitchen needs them.

Measuring Cups Another kitchen staple.

Glass Measuring Cup I use mine all the time, not just for measuring, but also for mixing up small quantity recipes.

Glass Pie Plates – This pie plate is my old faithful pie plate. I’ve had it forever, probably since we got married. Mine actually has the fluted edge sorta built in too, so you can press it in and get somewhat of a decorative edge without a lot of handiwork on your part.

Adjustable Pie Shield – Protects your pie crust from burning.

  1. Hi Mel,
    Regarding the easy shortcut no roll crust, do I need to cool it in the fridge before baking, and on what temp. the oven & what baking time.
    Thank you,

    • Hi Naya, you can chill it, but I haven’t had any issues with this crust shrinking… It won’t hurt to chill it for maybe half an hour, though, just to be safe. As for baking, it really depends on the instructions for whatever pie you’re making. If you’re just baking the crust by itself, I’d prick it all over with a fork so it won’t bubble up, and bake it at 400° for maybe 20 minutes or more, or until the crust begins to turn a nice golden color. You’re very welcome! I hope you enjoy.
