This comes from the 1943 Family Cookbook, which promises to "make your ration points go twice as far". They have a picture of this pie shell in the book and the caption reads: "who cares about a fat shortage so long as we can have pie shells made of rich toothsome Brazil nuts?".
- Mix nuts with sugar and press firmly into pie pan.
- Pour your desired filling into the shell and proceed according to the directions for the pie.
- Cream pie fillings, slightly cooled, or chiffon pie filling is best.
