This is part of a recipe in Bon Appetit. After making it I found it is not a good crust for a sweet pie. However it is great for savory pies. Original recipe had 10 tablespoons of butter, I reduced it.
I found this recipe in the first issue of Cooking Light and it really is great. Adding the egg white is a brilliant idea! Holds together very well. I am diabetic so I love the reduced sugar and reduced fat content.
The crust comes from an Emeril recipe for a mango cream pie, but I wanted to keep this separate so I don't forget about the crust alone. I like it in the mango cream pie, but think it would also be awesome for making a coconut cream pie.
Adapted slightly from Vicki's Vegan Kitchen (Square One (2011)). This is a super tender, but easy to work with pastry dough that can be modified for savoury tarts by simply removing the sugar and nutmeg. This recipe is best suited for bottom crusts, but rolled thinly it can be used as a topper too. This is also delicious made with sweet potatoes, especially for apple pie.
