“This is different than the other oil pastry as this has sugar and skim milk in it. I find it doesn't have the oily taste that some others have. The recipe is from the Ohio State University Medical Center-Popular Fat Controlled Low Cholesterol Recipes. Cook time is estimate depending on what you are making. You can brush egg yolk on bottom crust and prebake for 5 minutes.”
