INGREDIENTS

Nutrition
  • 34
    cup whole wheat pastry flour (Heh, I didn't use pastry.. I just used regular..)
  • 14
    cup natural corn oil (I just used canola, and a bit less than 1/4 cup)
  • 1
    pinch salt
  • 12
    cup ice water (Not sure what original recipe meant by that, so I just used semi-cold water. Worked fine.)

DIRECTIONS

  • Stir the flours together in a small bowl and freeze for one hour. Freeze the oil in a separate container for an hour also. Remove both from freezer and mix the oil into the flour until it makes a crumbly dough.
  • Stir the salt into the ice water and mix the water into the dough. Mix only enough to bind the dough. If it's too dry, add more water, a little at at time.
  • I found it easiest to simply place the ball of dough into the pan, and squish it around with my hand -- Bake as directed for whatever recipe your using.
