"I generally try to eat as many whole grain foods as I can and I was astonished to discover not a single basic 100% whole wheat pie crust recipe here at Allrecipes. So here's mine! I previously had trouble with whole wheat pie crusts; they tended to be hard to work with and crumbly. Then I added wheat gluten, as I do for bread, and voila!
This makes enough for one 8-inch pie. If you're making a recipe that requires a top and bottom crust, double the recipe."

I will be the first to say this was the perfect pie crust for a awesome pumpkin pie this thanksgiving! I LOVE this completely healthy pie crust and its definitely my new go-to recipe for my future pies. I don't really get the 21 tablespoons of flour at the end of the ingredients list; probably just a typo for 2 tbsp. of flour so don't forget that! I will upload a picture next time, I cut into the pie too early! Thank you so much Misty for sharing! :)
I don't use shortening so I used butter. This was good in that nobody said, "What is different?" But it isn't the best pie crust out there.
