best olive oil for pie crust?

addicted2cake | Nov 16, 2012 07:47 AM

I've read several pie crust recipes that use olive oil instead of butter/shortening. I would like to try using olive oil in a pie crust but don't know which brand or type of oil would be best. I'm looking for something with a mild, buttery flavor, not spicy or herb-y. I would like to make either pumpkin pie or apple pie using this crust. I've had success making oil crusts with canola oil, but would like to try something different. Any suggestions? Thanks and Happy Thanksgiving to all.
