EatingWell's Pumpkin Pie Crust

EatingWell's Pumpkin Pie Crust

Try this tender crust for any single-crust pie recipe. It will keep, tightly wrapped in plastic, in the refrigerator for up to 2 days or in the freezer for up to 6 months.

Serves 9

Prep Time 20 min

Total Time 90 min.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup whole-wheat pastry flour
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoon cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 2 tablespoon reduced-fat sour cream
  • 2 tablespoon canola oil
  • 2 tablespoon ice water

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Whisk whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, sugar and salt in a large bowl. With your fingers, quickly rub butter into the dry ingredients until the pieces are smaller in size but still visible. Add sour cream and oil; toss with a fork to combine. Sprinkle water over the mixture and toss with a fork until evenly moist. Knead the dough in the bowl a few times—the mixture will still be a little crumbly. Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead a few more times, until the dough just holds together. Shape into a 5-inch disk, wrap in plastic and refrigerate for 1 hour.

Step 2

Remove the dough from the refrigerator; let stand for 5 minutes to warm slightly. Roll between sheets of parchment or wax paper into a 13-inch circle. Peel off the top sheet and invert the dough into a 9-inch pie pan. Peel off the remaining paper. Trim the crust with kitchen shears or a butter knife so it overhangs the edge of the pan evenly. Tuck the overhanging crust under, forming a double-thick edge. Flute the edge with your fingers.

Step 3

Proceed with your favorite pumpkin pie recipe.
