Easy Whole Wheat Pie Crust

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Mims Squims

So quick to make, and the brown sugar adds a little extra sweetness to the crust. Good workout for your arms too! FYI: One reviewer said to use "soft wheat" instead of "hard wheat"...I have only ever used the flour that is labeled "whole wheat flour" or "white whole wheat flour," no mention of hard or soft, so I'm not sure what that's about. It seems none of my other reviewers have had that problem.

Really enjoyed the taste! Only made half the recipe for pumpkin pie. I'll only do whole wheat from now on! Thank you!
