Light margarine that is lower in calories and fat takes the place of shortening in this fine version of pie crust. This dough mixes and rolls out perfectly. Simply fill this crust with your favorite light filling to get an extra special, diet-friendly pie
INGREDIENTS (for 8 servings):
- 1/2 cup sifted all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup reduced fat margarine
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
Important: have diet margarine at room temperature. Sift flour, salt, and baking powder together in a deep bowl. Add margarine all at once. Cut in with fork or pastry blender and continue mixing until no pastry sticks to the sides of the bowl. Shape into a ball and wrap in wax paper. Refrigerate until thoroughly chilled (one hour or more).
