This is Planters' alternative to a traditional pastry pie crust. With Splenda substituted for the sugar, it would be an ideal crust for low carbers.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine the ground nuts, butter and sugar.
  2. Press the mixture evenly into the bottom and sides of a 9-inch pie plate.
  3. Bake at 350°F for 10 to 12 minutes.
  4. Cool and fill, as desired.

This was a great healthy crust that I used for a sugar free cheesecake. I used splenda for the crust and it tasted great with the cheesecake. I prefer this so much more than a regular crust and I was able to use up part of a big jar of almonds that were starting to collect oil at the bottom. Thanks!

This crust worked out wonderfully for us. We took 4 1 oz boxes of sugar free jello cheesecake pudding mix , mixed it with 20 oz of crushed pineapple. Poured it into the cooled shell and topped it with sugar free cool whip , chilled it and YUM!. The crust held up very well to cutting , we used Splenda and baked it for 10 minutes. This recipe has been printed and added to my hard copy Zaar cookbook. Thank you for posting :)
