Basic 100% Whole Wheat Pie Crust
I generally try to eat as many whole grain foods as I can and I was astonished to discover not a single basic 100% whole wheat pie crust recipe here at Allrecipes. So here's mine! I previously had trouble with whole wheat pie crusts; they tended to be hard to work with and crumbly. Then I added wheat gluten, as I do for bread, and voila! This makes enough for one 8-inch pie. If you're making a recipe that requires a top and bottom crust, double the recipe.
If you are making this for a pie that requires that the crust be baked before anything is added, form and crimp the edges of the crust, pierce liberally with a fork to prevent large bubbles from forming, and bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for about 30 minutes.
