Oh my gosh was this a yummy twist for cheesecake! I had pecans on hand so that is what I used and it turned out AWESOME. People were expected the usual graham cracker crust and were pleasantly surprised! I will use this one again without a doubt!!

Interesting recipe. It was quite greasy but the flavor was very good. I used brown sugar instead of white and I added some nutmeg.

EXCELLENT pie crust! I substituted splenda for the equivalent of 2 tbsp of sugar and put SF Chocolate fudge pudding in it. YUMMMM! Thank you for a wonderful pie crust!

I have only tried this once and I used it with a tripleberry pie filling (I would not suggest this crust for that). It is a great crust and I want to use it again with a chocolate pie filling or maybe even apple... I like the nuts!

Very good with Banana Pineapple Delight from this site. I didn't have any ground nuts on hand, so I food processed some walnuts and pecans together. It worked fine. I saved some of the sugary, buttery pieces to sprinkle on top for decoration.

i'm new to baking and this is the first time i have ever made pie crust. this recipe is so good and easy! i used 1 3/4cup of walnuts ground up in my blender. i also added a tablespoon of brown sugar in addition to the white sugar. i used a cheesecake filling and topped it with all kinds of fruit. YUM!

Wow! Really tasty - I will use this one again when I want a change from graham cracker or regular pie crust. I used brown sugar to try to replicate a Raspberry Walnut Tart I had at a restaurant, and the crust was dead on. (Need to work on the filling though!) Pecans would do nicely also. Thanks for sharing!

Instead of ground walnuts, I used chopped walnuts instead. And it turns out really crunchy. Great for chocolate fudge pie!
