This is so good, and can be used with pies and cheesecakes. Try to use toasted whole almonds for this it really makes a huge difference in the taste, I make a triple recipe, divide into three equal potions, use one and then freeze the other two in freezer bags to have ready for when I need it for a recipe. This crust is well worth making.
