Pie Crust

A few of you have been asking for a pie crust recipe. I haven't found one that I love yet, but this one is reminiscent of a graham cracker crumb crust, in flavor. The texture needs work though :)

I'm thinking of doubling the recipe next time, but using only one egg and perhaps a bit more butter. I'll post my results then, but in the meantime, this will do.


1 cup ground pecans
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
1 Tbsp. butter
1 tsp. honey
1/4 tsp. salt


Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees.

Pulse all ingredients in food processor until they form a ball. If too liquidy, add more ground pecans. Spread dough into a greased (I used ghee) 9 inch pie plate. Place in oven for 10-20 minutes until lightly browned. (The timing here is a ball-park estimate. I took it out when I smelled the pecans toasting.) Allow to cool completely before filling with lemon curd or peanut butter pie (recipe follows in the next post).
