"This is especially good with a chocolate-pecan pie recipe. Rich! For more special occasions, pecans halves can be pressed into the rim of the crust before baking."

What a great shortbread crust. I use this on bars now too. It's my 'secret ingredient'! Everyone comments on how delicious squares made with this crust are.(I've even used it on recipes from friends and their comments are..."Mine never tasted this good!"

This is THE BEST crust to go with pecan pie! It is very easy to make & my inlaws insist that i bring it for the holidays- I always bring home an empty plate. I wouldn't change a thing!

Made this a couple of times now, but no more. It is easy, but has way to much marg, & can't taste the cinnamon. The type of filling for the pie crust is very limited so with all things considered that is why I gave it a 2 star rating. I think using it with a pecan pie filling might be the only things you could use.
