Many of you have asked for ideas to clean up your Thanksgiving dinner recipes. Yesterday Mark mentioned he was on the hunt for better pie crust options and I just happened to stumble upon this recipe from Mark’s Daily Apple while researching ideas for today’s post. You’ll need a food processor but the crust consists of 4 simple ingredients: walnuts, baking soda, salt, and butter.
According to Mark, almonds and walnuts tend to make crusts that hold together better than other nuts and using a tart pan instead of a pie plate gives the crust better shape. To avoid a soggy bottom, pre-bake the crust, then add your filling and continue baking until the filling is done. Nut crusts are a little fragile, so let the pie cool completely before cutting into it and use care when removing the pie from the pan.
