Simple Pie Crust

Standard

It was Pie Day last week (March 14=3.14). It was even March 14, 2015 and pie is 3.1415. I am a closet nerd and so are my kids, its great! I made an apple pie for dessert using sprouted wheat flour, grass fed butter, and a pastured egg for the crust. The filling was some apples (a little mealy so we didn’t want to eat them plain), cinnamon, nutmeg, a splash of lemon juice, and about 1 Tablespoon of honey. I topped it with some coconut cream. Dessert with sprouted whole grains, healthy fats, and only 1 Tbs sweetener…I may have to start making pies more, especially when blueberry picking season rolls around! Dessert doesn’t have to be bad for you!

Simple Pie Crust

makes 1 crust (8 servings)

1 cup sprouted whole wheat flour

3 Tbs butter

1 egg

1/8 tsp salt

1 tsp vinegar

1-3 tsp cold water

Place flour and salt in a bowl. Work in cold butter with fingers until evenly distributed. Add beaten egg and vinegar. Add water one tsp at a time just until dough forms. Place in refrigerator if needed to make easier to roll. I roll it out between two silpats that’s are lightly floured.

Bake with desired pie, quiche, pot pie etc. (pie crusts are usually baked at 350 for about 45 minutes on average to brown it but not burn it).
