It's Time For Pie - Here's the Crust!

Chocolate, Cream, Cinnamon
Chocolate, Cream, Cinnamon

Making a flaky, crispy pie crust has always been a challenge for me, so these two pie crust recipes from Grandma's journal, have me very excited and ready for pie after dinner tonight.

Easy to make, these pie crusts come with Grandma's guaranteed fail-proof results...just follow the recipes below.

Nut Shell
2 cups of pecans
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon instant coffee
1/4 cup butter, melted
2/3 cup brown sugar, packed

Chop pecans very, very fine. Mix all ingredients and press mixture into pie pans. Bake at 350° for 12-15 minutes. Add your favorite filling...enjoy!

Graham Cracker Crust
2 1/2 cups graham crackers, finely ground
8 tablespoons butter, melted

Mix all ingredients, press mixture into pie pans. Place in refrigerator to set. If crispy crust is preferred, bake for 10 minutes in 375
° oven, cool. Spoon in your pie ingredients and chill until ready to serve.

  • Both recipes make enough to fill two 9" pie pans.
  • Add spices to the crust recipes that compliment your filling.
Are you ready for pie now?
