Basic Homemade Vegan Pie Crust Recipe

User Rating 3 Star Rating (1 Review)


Making an easy homemade vegan pie crust is simple; you really don't need the eggs and dairy to make a pie crust. Follow this simple recipe which uses flour, water and vegetable shortening to make a homemade egg-free and dairy-free simple pie crust.


  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 3/4 cup solid vegetable shortening (not margarine!)


Combine the flour and salt. Take about 1/3 cup of the flour and mix it together with the cold water.

Cut the vegetable shortening into the remaining flour until crumbly. Add the flour and water and mix just until a dough is formed.

Roll onto a lightly floured surface to about a 1/4 inch thickness. Roll to a 1/8-inch thickness and gently press into a pie tin.

This is a good recipe, but calls for too much water. Water should be added as needed, just about 2 TBSP is plenty.
