Fried Pie Crust

The crust is fried, not the pie. This originally came from a wonderful pineapple cream pie, but is great with all no-bake cream fillings.

The name was intriguing, the recipe sounded pasty, greasy, and raw - sort of like a roux pressed into a pie pan. Still I pressed on. What a delightful surprise! This turns out slightly crispy, slightly sweet, and tastes wonderfully toasty. In addition, it is not at all crumbly. The trick is, as the recipe says, to cook over "medium" heat until toasty or golden "brown." Be mindful to stir often as once it begins to brown it will burn quickly. I only wish I could give it 10 stars for originality, taste, and ease of preparation.

Easy and amazing! I seriously can't believe so few have tried it. I made the crust to go with (what else) a coconut cream pie. It was easy to work with and serving was a breeze. I may add a splash of vanilla next time and try to cut down on the butter a little, just for health sake.

This was good. I would try it again with less coconut(not a huge fan of coconut). With a lemon meringue pie it would be really good. I was really worried about it being greasy, and it really wasn't. I tried it with a chocolate cream pie (which was not very good). More people really need to try this easy recipe!~~
