You can use whole wheat flour in any pie crust recipe.

Just a quick clarification. White flour IS wheat flour. It just doesn't have the outer bran layer ground in with it.

I don't have a recipe for you, but I've been told not to use all whole wheat flour alone, as your product will be too dry. It's better to mix the flours. Like 3 parts of the whole wheat flour to 1 part regular all purpose flour.
