Pie crust is by far my favorite thing to make in the kitchen. First things first, I am an advocate for good fat and a high-quality, organic, grass-fed butter devotee. Good butter truly makes all the difference when baking. Beyond its health benefits, the flavor of good butter can make even the most novice bakers look good. This recipe primary uses whole-wheat flour but includes a small additional of spelt flour for flavor and depth. If you don't have spelt, you can simply add in a 1/2 cup more all-purpose or whole-wheat flour in its stead.The trick with pie crust is to keep everything cold; you don’t want the heat from your hands to melt the butter. Instead, you want the cold butter lovingly layered into the flour so your pie crust bakes up flaky. Next, unless you are using a food processor, I recommend using your hands to form the dough. Feeling the moisture content makes all the difference in making the perfect crust. However, if you do add too much water, simply throw in a bit more flour to balance it out again. Lastly, when your dough is finished, shape into flat, round discs; this will make it much easier to roll out.

This pie crust works well for custard-based pies. It’s easy to make and tastes wonderfully rich. Graham crackers are naturally low in fat, so I prefer to use the full-fat ones rather than the reduced-fat graham crackers, which have an artificial taste. — Marisa Churchill, Sweet and Skinny
