This recipe came from "The Farmers Almanac Blue Ribbon Recipes" cookbook, used for a pumpkin pie. I used it last night to make Bev's Chocolate Chip Pie. It turned out great. It can be prebaked for a cream-filled pie, or unbaked for a pie that must go into the oven. You could use this recipe as an alternative to just about any "crumb crust". Hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour and baking soda.
  2. Add the butter, brown sugar, walnuts and vanilla.
  3. Blend well.
  4. Press the mixture, a small amount at a time, into a 9-inch pie plate, building up the sides and fluting the edge.
  5. Cover the fluting with a strip of aluminum foil to prevent overbowning.

This was an easy crust to assemble and gave that little something extra to my pie! I used it on Ocean~Ivy's Best Fudge Brownie Pie and it was delicious! I plan on trying it next prebaked for a refrigerated cream pie. It puts those crumb crusts to shame! Thanks for sharing with us Cindy Lynn!

I wasn't sure about this recipe, but I had walnuts I wanted to use up. This was a great crust! I just threw everything into a food processor, made it so simple and so quick. I used it for (Caramel Banana Pie...only 6 ingredients! From the Lone Star Legacy Cookbook.)Caramel Banana Pie...only 6 ingredients! From the Lone Star Legacy Cookbook by Tinks.

Being a novice pie maker, I was glad that I was able to make this delicious crust! It was easy to do, although it will take a lot of patience to form it in the pie pan! =)
