"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."

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!

Fabulouse pie crust! I used it for a chocolate cream pie. It received rave reviews from my family and was gone in no time! Thanks for sharing!
