This crust comes together in a minute and is a pleasure to work with. I made 8 individual mini tarts using Yummy Crunchy Caramel Apple Pie with a dollop of whipping cream. A dream combination. I will for sure be making this crust for many times to come. Thanks for sharing.

Great pie crust!! Loved the pecans nutty flavor and texture and this was a sweet pie crust which was great contrast to the tart filling. I used the filling from my Lemon Tart, which was really nice and tart and made a perfect combination. Next time I will add a pinch of salt to the crust, but feel that was the only thing missing for me. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for ZWT 9

A wonderfully flavoursome tart or pie base which I used for Key Lime Tarts, and one that I'll certainly use again. Thank you for sharing this recipe, momaphet. Made for Newest Zaar Tag.
