This is a five star recipe merely due to its simplicity, easy to follow instructions, and excellent reviews. Now, I had to be the difficult person who wanted to make a healthier version. I used half all-purpose and half white whole wheat flour. I substituted Crisco for an organic, non-hydrogenated vegetable shortening. This mixture did not work and I don't believe i added enough water to the mixture. In the future, I will have to use either all organize all-purpose flour or a ratio of organic all-purpose flour and whole wheat pastry flour (not white whole wheat flour). Additionally, I will use 1/4 c shortening and 1/4 c butter. I use this crust for pot pie and it seemed to have a very bland taste. I will play with this recipe to yield a healthier version. Without considering my alterations, its a simple, great recipe to use for pie crust.
