Nut Pie Crusts - Who Knew?

I read an interesting article about last minute pies at Food and Wine magazine online.

I have never heard of these nut crusts that are shelf stable, have you? I always use frozen pie crusts but my freezer is jam packed right now and can't hold one more item. These prepared nut crusts might be the answer to my problem. I must look for them the next time I go food shopping. Both photos by Sarah Crowder.

Connie -- I can't wait to try them either. I think a pecan one would be great under a pumpkin pie and a walnut one under an apple pie. Yum.

What a great idea. Also thinking that they'd be good for the hard to cook for vegan in your life--no butter. Those pies are making my mouth water. I wonder also if they don't get as soggy as a traditional crust...Hope you give us a report.

These crusts may be really good. But for the person hoping they might be good when cooking vegan, they should check ingredients listed on packaging to see what is used to make the crusts hold together in these ready-made crusts. In my experience, most made-from-scratch recipes for crumb-type crusts call for melted butter for moistening the crumbs to hold together and molding in pie pan. The frozen ones might use something besides real butter.

Those crusts would be very healthy for those who are trying to cut the bad carbs. Nuts have good fat and are so good for you unless of course your are allergic to them. I would love to try them although I make and eat pie so seldom, the joys of being pre-diabetic.
