This Recipe was fantastic, Highly recommend, except before baking I would suggest
sticking the crust with a fork before baking to prevent any bubbles from forming.
totally delicious, even my non-crust eating teenager gobbled it up..
I was not impressed with this crust. It was certainly easy to make and it was sufficent with the custard pie that I made, but it just lacked the flavor needed for me to give it a 5. A tip: if using this crust with a cooked pie (as opposed to a bannana cream or something) DO NOT COOK THE CRUST SEPERATELY! It will be overcooked.
Yummy, this crust was good. Ironically though, I am not a fan of most nuts so I substituted with Grape Nuts cereal and that worked very well. Very easy to prepare. This is also excellent with cheesecake. Great variation from boring old graham crackers!!
This was the first pie crust I have ever made. I baked a perfect pie crust to compliment a coconut cream pie.
If you're looking for a tastier alternative to a graham cracker crust, this is it. It's pretty yummy. I don't know how you could get enough out of this recipe to use half for the crust and half for topping. It has to be miswritten. My modifications: I toasted the pecans for a more intense flavor. I also toasted some coconut and ground it up in my food processor and added that in. The nuts and coconut came out to about 3/4 cup, so I decreased the flour by 1/4 cup. That was a good change, and was awesome with coconut cream pie.
I loved this crust! I used a ceramic pie plate and had difficulty getting the crust out intact. Next time I'll grease the pan.
This was my first attempt at making crust from scratch and it was EXCELLENT!! I didn't have any pecans so I used almonds instead. My husband loved it and it couldn't have been easier or quicker. If you're like me and terrible at rolling things out then this recipe is definitely for you.
This was delicious. I surfed the net since I had extra pie filling but lacked pie crust. Perfect pumpkin pie (using walnuts). I'm not an avid cook and was very pleased how easy this was to make! Hopefully I will find more receipes like this one!!!
