This is a 10-star review for this pie crust! Sometimes, no matter HOW great your standard butter/lard pie crust tastes, you want something "else" to go with a favourite pie. I made this crust for a TEN INCH pie, using Uncle Bills' original recipe for the ingredients: Uncle Bill's Southern Style Pecan Pie. THIS recipe is for a NINE inch pie crust, so use either, depending upon your pie pan. Now, I'm a "ratio" kinda gal so I counted how many cookies and crackers you'd need to make the original pie crust: 36 Vanilla wafers=1 1/4 cup crumbs; 8-4 square graham crackers=1 1/4 cup crumbs. Because I was making this for a Lemon Meringue pie, I knew that the pecans would be too "heavy" a taste, so I used 1/2 cup of almonds instead, grinding them up with some of the crumbs so that I did not end up with "almond butter"! LOL My family went wild over the combination and I plan to use this crust far more often then I initially planned to: for pumpkin pie, custard, etc. A real addition to ANY baker's recipe box; Thank YOU, again, Uncle Bill for being a 10-Star Chef!!!
