Recipe by AmyZoe
If you have a recipe that calls for a graham-cracker crust, and you don't have the ingredients to make one or just want to try something that's not only simpler but much tastier--try this. Straight from Joy of Cooking, I found this recipe when I made Million Dollar Pie because I didn't feel like crushing graham crackers. It's simple and to die for and requires zero baking. My personal preference is pecans, but you may use walnuts or what the heck--try any nut out for size.

Made this with walnuts and came out perfect! I much prefer this kind of crust on a cheesecake. I also used the advise of the first reviewer. Thanks for posting a simple but yummy recipe!
- 2 cups walnuts or 2 cups pecans
- 1⁄4 cup unsalted butter
- 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
