Pie Dough Pastry

Pie Dough Pastry

This cool pie dough pastry is easy for any baker to make! No need for pastry knives, just freeze the pre-measured canola oil the night before.  The frozen oil acts like a solid fat but with all the health benefits of canola oil, low in saturated fat and trans-fat free.  You can use the dough for sweet or savory fillings.  It’s just like Grandma’s but better!
