Wheat germ crust

Yield: 8 servings

Measure Ingredient
1½ cup All purpose flour
¼ cup Wheat germ
6 tablespoons Polyunsaturated stick margarine cut into
\N \N ; 12 small pieces and chilled in the
\N \N ; freezer for 2 hours
5 tablespoons Ice water
1 tablespoon 2% fat milk

Sift the flour into a bowl and stir in the wheat germ. Pinch the margarine pieces into the flour with the tips of your fingers until its completely distributed.

Pour in the ice water and mix the dough with your fingers until it sticks together and forms a small ball.

Pre-heat the oven to 425F. Turn the dough out onto a floured board and roll into a long rectangle, about ¼ inch thick. Fold the bottom third over the middle and the top third over that and repeat the process twice more.

Finally, roll the dough out into a circle and place a pie plate on top, upside down. Cut along the outside edge of the pie plate with a sharp knife to get the perfect sized circle. Roll it up over a rolling pin and unroll it onto a baking sheet covered with baking parchment.

If you're making a pie top with the dough, you might want to score the dough with serving lines that make the rust easier to slice after it's baked. It does make a very crisp, flaky crust. Bake for 10 minutes.
