Spelt Pie Crust

This pie crust is ideal for quiche and savoury fillings. Most pie crust recipes tell you to refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before rolling out but I find with this recipe it is just as easy to roll out and place in pie plate right away and then refrigerate.

Using a food processor, this recipe takes seconds to make and can be used right away or frozen for up to 3 months.
