    ~SarahBeth~'s Note:

    From the Cuisinart website. It sounds like it would be amazing for a cheesecake crust or a pumpkin pie! The original recipes says you need a spice grinder to grind one whole cinnamon stick and one whole nutmeg with the pecans. I am altering it and substituting 1 tsp of cinnamon and 1/2 tsp of nutmeg. So you may want to base it a little on taste. Chop the pecans in a mini-food chopper if you have one!

      I made this crust with pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving dinner. My family raved about it! I altered the recipe slightly in the following ways: I used didn't toast the pecans to save time. I used 10 Biscoff cookies instead of graham crackers, which ends up being 2/3 cup of crumbs. I used salted butter because I didn't have any unsalted butter on hand. I omitted the nutmeg since the Biscoff cookies have enough flavor to them. And I used just 2 tablespoons of butter.

      Here's my method: I added whole pecans and whole Biscoff cookies to my Vita-Mix, then added the spices. This saved so much time! Then I transferred the mixture to a bowl and incorporated the butter and vanilla. Once in the oven the crust browned very quickly so using untoasted pecans seemed to work out. When I actually baked my pumpkin pie, the crust almost burned! I had to cover the whole pie with aluminum foil to protect it. Next time, I plan to bake the crust for a little less time prevent this from happening again.

      Fortunately, my pie ended up being just a tad too brown, but not at all burned. It was a wonderful twist on regular pumpkin pie. The crust is very rich and I may add even less butter next time. Thank you for the recipe SaraBeth!

      I really liked the idea of this crust, but it was a lot of extra work for just an OK flavor.

      Delicious variation on a graham cracker crust! I used Splenda Brown Sugar Blend for the brown sugar and granulated sugar. Filled the crust with Libby's Sensibly Delicious Pumpkin Pie. The spices were just right.
