    fluffernutter's Note:

    Savory and crunchy and super nutritious, this crust is a great base for Russian Carrot Tart, spinach quiche, butternut squash and leek tart, and other vegetable or cheese tarts. The recipe is from The Enchanted Broccoli Forest by Mollie Katzen.

      Very nice crust! I used half wholewheat and half white flour. I used pecans and Land O Lakes soft baking butter. I made this crust for Zucchini Quiche Zucchini Quiche. It was a nice compliment to the quiche. Thanks, I will use this again. Carole in Orlando
