"I used to wonder why I disliked cheesecake and key lime pie, since I like cream cheese pastry and lemon pie. Then I tried a key lime pie in a shortbread crust and realized it was the graham cracker crust I disliked. Both these desserts need a darker than usual crust, however."

Good Crust! Easy recipe!
Very nice. I'd definitely suggest coating the pie plate with cooking spray, though. My crust stuck like crazy to the pie pan, and I use a glass pie pan. I don't have high protein wheat flour, so I just used regular ww flour. I'm not sure if that made any difference or not, but it really didn't get crumbly. I added wheat germ to get a bit of the texture of a graham cracker crust--about 2 tablespoons, and I added about 3 tablespoons more flour than it called for. It also took longer to bake--about 5 minutes more, but that tends to depend on your oven. I ended up with extra, almost enough to make another pie, so I'll find something to do with that. Thanks for the recipe!
