Sunflower Oil Shortcrust (trans fat free)

  • Preparation 10 MIN
    Chilling 1 H
  • Makes One 23-cm (9-inch) pie shell



  1. In a bowl, combine the dry ingredients and make a well in the centre. Add the remaining ingredients and cut in with a knife; blend well. Shape into a ball and cover the dough with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 1 hour before rolling out.


When I prepare this dough for a savoury pie, I use sunflower oil. Canola oil, a more neutral oil, is perfect for sweet pies; when made with a little sugar and vanilla extract added in, this makes the recipe even better.
