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!!
