Incredibly good and easy pie crust

Here is a fabulous tastey and easy pie crust I have been using. I really like it because you don't have to roll it out then get it off the counter with out tearing just press it in the pie pan :) This is taken from Wholesome Home Cooking by Katie Stoltzfus. Favorite cookbook ever!

This recipe makes 2 crusts.

2 1/2 c sprouted spelt flour
1/4 c sucanat or maple syrup
1/2 tsp celtic sea salt

1 c soft, but still cool raw butter
4 oz organic cream cheese

In a bowl, whisk together flour, sweetener and salt. In a mixer, beat butter and cream cheese together well, scraping sides of bolw once or twice. Add flour mixture to butter/cheese mixture in mixer bowl. Combine at medium low until crumbly, like coarse cornmeal. Scrape down bowl and mix at medium high until dough forms large clumps, about 30 seconds. Transfer dough to 2 greased pie plates, pat out with palm of your hand evenly.
