Whole Wheat Pie Crust

by Steph

A while ago I had some friends over for dinner and we were talking about pie, I don’t know why…all my conversations end up being about food.  I had to admit I had never made a pie. I love desserts, make them all the time. And I love cooking, I don’t know how it had happened that I never made a pie crust.  Weird…any who…I thought I would try making a homemade whole wheat pie crust.  It was a lot easier then I thought it would be.  I wrote down the recipe but for the life of me can’t remember where I got it from.  But its fairly simple.  I did it by hand, next time I will use a food processor to combine the dough.

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour (I use bob’s red mill)
  • 1/3 cup cold butter
  • 1/4 cup sea salt
  • about 4 tbs of water

Equipment:

  • food processor or bowl
  • rolling pin

 

In a bowl or food processor, mix the flour and salt.

Cut in the butter either by hand or by food processor

Add water 1 TBS at a time until the dough starts to come together. If you are using the food processor, process until the dough forms a ball. If by hand need the dough until it forms a ball. But don’t overwork the dough.

 

Roll into you desired shape, round or rectangular.  I made rectangular because I made a large pot pie in a casserole dish :-)

 

And done, easy enough. I won’t be buying store bought pie crusts anymore.
