There are many different recipes – most of them go something along these lines: Mix flour, for example all-purpose flour, with a little sugar and salt in a food processor. Add cold vegan butter and shortening in cubes. It's important that the fats stay cold to get the right texture. Then, add some water or vegan milk. Take the dough out of the food processor and roll it to a ball. Be careful not to keep it in your hands for too long, as this will warm up the dough. Use a rolling pin to make your own vegan pie crust. Finally, transfer the crust to a form – and you're vegan pie crust is ready for preheating!
