Oatmeal Nut Pie Crust

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by MI Mitten

I just found this recipe in an old band bosters cookbook and placing it here for sharing and later use. The recipe mentions that it is a good substitute for graham cracker crust. It sounds good to me and might be a good alternative for cream pies or maybe even dutch apple or cherry.

Just what I was looking for to pair w/ lime curd for a tart! I opted to pulse in food processor after mixing all ingredients as I wanted a little finer texture on the oats. I forgot to time it since no bake time was given for an empty crust...I just pulled it out when it looked golden, and suspect it was about 15-20 min. in oven total in glass pie pan. Pressed into pan well, but would weight it down in the future baking it empty. I submitted a picture of what it looked like after baking. Great texture to compliment curd!
