  9. Make the pie crust by first mixing the flours, salt and oil together with a fork or pastry blender until the flour forms small pebbles.
  10. Add the liquid all at once, mixing quickly, to form a ball of dough. Do not over mix or knead.
  11. Roll out the dough on a floured surface, forming a crust.
  12. Place crust in a 9" pie plate. Crimp edges and trim crust.
  13. Poke holes several places in the bottom of the crust with a fork to allow steam to release and prevent bubbling.

Variation: couscous can be used to make a pie crust. Please see EDEN's recipe for Pie Crust - No Bake Couscous.
