Crust for Two
EatingWell Test Kitchen
“Makes just enough for a two-person tart.”
¼ cup whole-wheat pastry flour, (see Sources)
¼ cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon sugar
⅛ teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon cold unsalted butter, cut into 4 chunks
1 tablespoon canola oil, or walnut oil
¼ teaspoon distilled white vinegar
1-2 tablespoons cold water
1Mix whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, sugar and salt in a medium bowl. Cut in butter with a pastry cutter or fork until it is smaller than peas. Stir in oil and vinegar. Mix in enough water so the dough is evenly moist and a little crumbly but not wet. Gather the dough into a ball, then pat it into a disk.
Make Ahead Tip: Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 3 days. Let stand at room temperature for about 5 minutes before rolling.
White whole-wheat flour, made from a special variety of white wheat, is light in color and flavor but has the same nutritional properties as regular whole-wheat flour.
Look for whole-wheat pastry flour in the natural-foods section of large supermarkets and natural-foods stores. Sources include King Arthur Flour, (800) 827-6836, www.bakerscatalogue.com, and Bob's Red Mill, (800) 349-2173, www.bobsredmill.com.
