    Marz's Note:

    By using this SIMPLE crust recipe, you end up enhancing and improving on the store bought pie crust. Just a few easy steps, sealing the crust with parmesan cheese prevents a soggy crust The melted cheese creates a somewhat water proof barrier that helps keep moisture IN the filling. The cheese also enhances the over flavor of the crust. After trying this recipe, I always use this recipe for making quiche crusts.
