“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


  • 1 Mix 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.
  • Sources 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,, and Bob's Red Mill, (800) 349-2173,
