Love this crust! It's a simple and very easy to make recipe. One thing that appealed to me when I first read the recipe is that it said just to press the crust into the pan, I thought great, no messy rolling! But when I tried that the first two times I used the recipe the results were disappointing; hard to get a consistent crust and the crust ended up a little tough. So I've tried rolling it since and the results are much better. And the bonus is that it rolls out much easier than a butter crust; it's not so sticky.
