organic whole wheat pie crust


i played around with different recipes to find a whole wheat pie crust that wasn't dried out. this recipe, if done right is flaky and delicious. i use it for my apple pie and chicken pot pie alike. careful not to overwork the dough, the more its handled or mixed, the dryer it will be.
