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!
