Hydrogenated oil, partially hydrogenated oil, trans fats: These are names for a modified fat that was introduced into our foods several decades ago that we have all come to know and fear. And well we should. Hydrogenated oil was meant to have a "forever" shelf life, whether that be in our favorite grocery store isles, or in our life-sustaining arteries. This substance is found is so many foods, such as cookies, crackers, baking mixes, and frozen prepared foods. We even sometimes use it in our homes in baking, such as when we use shortening for pie crusts.
For quite some time I have been meaning to create a pie crust recipe that would taste good, but contain no shortening. Because of the motivation of "Tackle It Tuesday", I have finally done it! My "Tackle It" was the featured guest post at 5 Minutes For Mom's Tackle It Tuesday, so if you would like to read more about how I make a shortening-free pie crust like this...,
