I have been wanting to make a homemade pie crust for some time now. I had always bought the already prepared whole wheat crusts from whole foods. Although they are tasty, I wanted to compare it to a homemade crust. I decided to simply try their recipe for a typical pie crust made with whole wheat flour. I was extremely happy with the results. The crust didn't get soggy when I made a quiche with it and it was nice and flaky as well. The only step I added to the recipe was that I sprayed my pie dish with nonstick cooking spray and lightly floured it as well.
Since I didn't change the recipe in any way I am just including the link directly to the pie crust recipe for you. The nutrition info is also included with their recipe.

The quiche recipe will be coming on my blog this week and it is mighty yummy! Also if you have a food processor it makes life a lot easier!

Step 1: Spray and lightly pie dish.
Step 2: Prepare dough, place it on a piece of parchment paper and flatten by hand.
Step 3: Lay another piece of parchment paper on top of the dough and use a rolling pin to form a circular shape. As long as it is larger than your dish, you are good!
Step 4: Remove the top parchment paper and invert pie dish onto dough.
Step 5: Flip over smoothing dough into dish and trim edges with a knife.
Step 6: Use a fork to make the crust pretty! Add quiche goodies and you are done!
How many of you already make a fabulous whole wheat crust at home? Share your recipe and comments I'd love to hear!

I think I am on the dense side of this because when I click on the "link directly to the pie crust recipe " it takes me to recipes, but not to the Whole Wheat Pie cruse. I cannot find the one you are writing about on the Whole Food site. I guess I need a little (LOT) of help to find it.
what size pie dish did you use?

I have actually made a really good whole wheat pie crust before. It similar to this recipe but I use a lot more butter but that could be because it makes two pie crusts instead of one. Thanks for sharing 🙂
Thanks for stopping by!
