Whole Wheat Oil Pie Crust

Back in the 70's, my cousin married a wonderful girl named Candy. She soon became a family favorite and contributed to our family in many ways. Candy loves to cook and shared her pie crust recipe with me. For more than 30 years, it's been my pie crust recipe of choice.

Candy's Whole Wheat Oil Pie Crust

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp. salt

Sift together. Make a well in the center of the flour and set aside.

In another bowl mix:

2/3 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup boiling water

Mix the oil and water together, stirring briskly with a wire whip. Pour all at once into well in center of flour mixture. Stir just until flour is moist. Do not overmix. Roll between wax paper while still warm.

Makes 2 crusts. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until golden or use as bottom and top crust for your favorite fruit pie.
