I use this for my base of a lot of my cheesecakes, instead of the cookie crumbs..takes a few minutes more, but always well worth it... This can be made by hand or with your food processor.

  1. Stir the flours, and sugar together in a large bowl.

  6. Roll out as any pastry on a lightly floured board, and place onto bottom of pan.
  7. Can also make strips and place around bottom creating a side.

  10. This will make a nice 9 inch spring form pan crust.
