perfect vegan pie crust

Flaky and Foolproof Vegan Pie Crust

  • Author: Georgia
  • Yield: 2 crusts 1x
  • Diet: Vegan


This easy vegan pie crust has been my go-to recipe for decades. It is flaky, flavorful and so easy to work with that it will change your mind about making your own crust.



  • 2 cups all-purpose flour, preferably organic
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2/3 cup vegan shortening (I use Nutiva or Spectrum)
  • 2 Tbs vegan butter (Earth Balance sticks), melted
  • 5 Tbs cold water
  • 1 Tbs vinegar (white or apple cider vinegar)


  1. Mix the flour and salt.
  2. Cut in the shortening and melted butter and combine until the mixture is like coarse crumbs.
  3. Combine the water and vinegar and then add to the mixture.
  4. Form into a ball and chill.
  5. Roll out to form 2 crusts. (check out my technique on the video)

    This is foolproof. 🙂
