Flaky pie crust (amish cooking)

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
2 cups Sifted whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon Salt
2 tablespoons Wheat germ
¾ cup Margarine
4 tablespoons Ice water (4-5 tablespoons)

Combine the flour with the salt in a medium sized bowl, then add the wheat germ. With a pastry blender, cut in the margarine. Sprinkle the ice water over the pastry and mix it with a fork. The pastry should be just moist enough to hold together.

This dough handles like any other using white flour, but it's far more nutritious.
