Unless you are on a gluten-free diet, making your own homemade whole wheat pie crust is a great way to make your pies a little healthier this year. If you are gluten-free, substitute rice or soy flour for the whole wheat flour. Be sure to read how to mill flour in a blender.

You can skip the last baking part if you will be baking your entire pie for a significant amount of time. I’ve skipped this part, and just gone straight to adding the filling and baking the entire pie in the oven.
I’ve used this recipe trying both coconut oil and butter, and I can’t tell a difference between the two. Since coconut oil is a better fat than butter, you might as well use it! Just don’t add coconut oil to cold flour, as it will harden and you will have a tough time making your dough (I’ve made that mistake several times!).
