Wheat Germ Pie Crust

  • 2 C. Unbleached Flour
  • 1/4 C. Wheat Germ
  • 1 tsp. Salt if wanted
  • 2/3 C. Olive Oil (original recipe calls for vegetable oil,but olive is healthier)
  • 1/3 C. Boiling Water

Mix Salt, Flour, and Wheat Germ.

Pour Boiling Water and Olive Oil in all at once and stir with fork.

Separate dough into 2 equal balls(keep covered to prevent drying out)

Roll dough(1 ball) between 2 pieces of Wax Paper.

Remove top paper,lay crust side down on pie pan,remove top paper,flute edges.

Makes one 10 inch pie crust(I get 2 crusts,(hence 2 balls)bottom and top, out of it, unless you want really thick crust) 🙂

Bake at 450 degrees for 15 minutes. Turn down to 350 degrees for 45 minutes.

Note: If you need to bake the crust without filling, poke holes in crust and bake for about ten minutes or until golden brown.

This recipe was given to me by a very dear friend over 30 years ago. This crust is very delicious and better for you! ENJOY!!! 🙂
