Oatmeal Pie Shell

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Diana Adcock

This dough might break when put into the pie plate-push back together and patch if needed. A great shell for Hommus Pie.

Great pastry crust... not too sweet... just the way I like it. I left out the herbs and used it for a pumkin pie. The family loved it.
