Whole Wheat Pastry Crust will bring the homemade amazingness to your pie game.


  • 2 cups whole wheat flour (I used King Arthur)
  • 10 tablespoons cold butter (I used Kerrygold)
  • 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vinegar
  • 1/2 cup icy cold water


  1. Mix flour, salt, and flaxseed in a food processor.
  2. Add cold butter and cut in using a pastry blender, or pulse in the food processor.
  3. Mix water, egg, and vinegar in a measuring cup.
  4. Add 2 to 3 tablespoons ice water mix at a time, until dough forms into a ball. Gather up and pat into a disc. If possible, cover and refrigerate dough for 30 minutes before rolling out.
  5. When ready to use, roll dough out on a lightly floured surface.
