    FLUFFSTER's Note:

    This crust is fantastic! You can use this for almost any pie, just use your imagination! The dates really add something, not only in the crust, but in the whole pie. You can use different nuts, but please try the pecans first. This is a rather healthy crust, for us who are into healthy heating.
