Spelt Pie Crust

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Spud Nut

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.
