Using a fork, stir 1/4 cup cooking oil and 3 tablespoons fat-free milk into flour mixture. If necessary, stir in an additional 1 tablespoon milk to moisten (dough will appear crumbly). Form dough into a ball. On a lightly floured surface, slightly flatten dough ball. Roll dough from center to edge into a 12-inch circle. Carefully roll pastry circle around rolling pin. Carefully transfer pastry to a 9-inch pie plate (pastry will be very tender). Ease into pie plate, being careful not to stretch pastry. Trim pastry to 1/2 inch beyond edge of pie plate. Fold under pastry edge and crimp as desired. Prick pastry all over with a fork. Line with a double thickness of foil. Bake for 8 minutes. Remove foil. Bake for 5 to 6 minutes more or until golden.
