Whole Grain Butter Crust Recipe

Whole Grain Butter Crust Recipe[yields]

Butter gives the crust flavor, the coconut oil or lard adds texture, flakiness.

Vodka, which is 60% water and 40% alcohol, adds moisture without perpetuating gluten formation since gluten doesn’t form in ethanol. The alcohol vaporizes during baking. Because of this the dough may seem a little moister than usual when you roll it out.
