    Green Cuisine's Note:

    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.

      Loved it! Used it with Bev's blueberry pie (24521) and all in all it made for a smashing dessert. Thanks!

      Excellent recipe! I normally use store-bought crusts, but didn't have one so I resorted to Zaar. Of course wanting to be healthy, I sought out whole wheat. This was a great tasting crust and easy to make and roll. I like the extra hardiness that the whole wheat added. As easy as this was to make, I think I'm going to give up store bought.
