    Spud Nut's Note:

    Makes 2 pie crusts. The secret to flaky crust is to mix the dough just enough to incorporate the ingredients then stop. Often I add a dash of vinegar in the ice water, it's a matter of personal preference.

      Definitely a flakey crust and it tastes great. I used half for a crust but it ends up being a very thin crust and next time I would use the entire batch for one thicker crust as it is too thin and flakey unless you keep it in the tin.

      Tried this a few nights ago for my pot pie and it turned out great! Next time I'll try the white flour. Thanks for posting!

      A great, versatile crust. I made a savory version (the original recipe) and a sweet version (added 6 table spoons of sugar) for my pot pie and my apple-pear pie, respectively. Crust was very tasty in both cases and had the added benefit of being organic and whole grain.
