Prepare Whole Wheat Pastry: Stir together all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, and salt in a large bowl. Using a pastry blender, cut in shortening until pieces are pea-size. Sprinkle ice water over part of the flour mixture; toss gently with a fork. Push the moistened dough to the side of the bowl. Repeat with additional ice water, 1 tablespoon at a time, until all of the flour mixture is moistened. Gather dough into a ball, kneading gently, until it holds together.
This lighter pumpkin pie is made with a whole wheat crust and sweetened with maple syrup. It's the perfect lighter dessert after your Holiday meal.
