In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder.
In a separate bowl, combine the oil, water, and vodka.
Pour the wet ingredients over the dry ingredients.
With a fork, stir until the ingredients are evenly moistened.
With your hands, gather the dough into a rough ball in the bowl (it will be crumbly). Press a sheet of plastic tightly against the top and refrigerate for 1 hour.
When ready to use, turn the dough out into your pie dish and with your fingers, press it into an even layer along the bottom and up the sides (this is a no roll pie crust). Use in any of your favorite sweet or savory recipes!
*If you are using this recipe for a dessert, increase to 2 to 3 tablespoons of granulated sugar (or you can keep it as is for a less sweet pie crust).
**The flavor of the oil you use will affect the resulting flavor of the crust. Canola oil will yield the most neutral flavor. You also can use olive oil if you like the flavor in the crust (this is nice for savory recipes). Melted, cooled coconut oil will work as well (again, it will affect the flavor of the crust).
If you'd like to make 2 crusts, you can double the recipe. Since this filling does not roll, it doesn't work for a traditional style top pie crust but makes a delicious streusel-ish top crust for sweet pies. Double the recipe, press 2/3 of the dough into the bottom of the pie dish, and add your filling. Mix the remaining dough with 2 tablespoons granulated sugar, then sprinkle the remainder over the top of sweet pie filling and bake as directed.
