Pecan Nut Crust

  • 2 1/2 c. ground pecans
  • 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/3 c. white sugar
  • 4 T. unsalted butter, melted

Stir together the ground nuts, cinnamon, and sugar. Mix in the melted butter.

Press the mixture into the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch, deep-dish style, pie pan. Chill the unbaked crust in the refrigerator for about 30 to 45 minutes.

Place the pie crust on a cookie sheet, and position on the middle rack of a preheated 350 degree F oven. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until lightly browned. WATCH it carefully, as nut crusts burn easily. Cool completely before filling with the custard-type filling of your choice.

  • Yields: 1 pie crust
  • Preparation Time: 60 minutes
