Dill Pastry Crust

3/4 cup buckwheat flour
1/3 cup fresh dill leaves and some stems, chopped fine

  1. To the bowl of a pastry mixer or food processor, add the flours, dill, and salt. Mix to combine.
  2. Add the butter and oil and mix to a crumb-like consistency.
  3. Slowly, add enough water until the dough begins to form a smooth clump.
  4. On a lightly floured surface with a floured rolling pin, roll the dough to fit a 10 inch pan.
