"Looked and looked on Zaar for just the shortbread crust and found many delicious crusts, but just not the one I was looking for. Perhaps I didn't key in the right search, but I found this recipe on the web and it's just what I was looking for...simple."

"Great recipe. I like substituting 1/4 of the flour with almond flour. A double recipe can be spread into a half sheet pan and baked. Be sure to poke several holes. I like to spread the cooled crust with lightly sweetened mascarpone and lots of beautiful fresh fruit."
"Dee-licious crust for my Strawberries & Cream Pie! I didn't want a thick crust so I reduced the flour to just a tad more than 1 cup, used 1 stick salted butter (omitted the salt), and 1/3 cup confectioners sugar. Turned out perfect and was really easy to work with. I beat the mixture with a mixer just until coarse crumbs formed then pressed into my pie plate. Will use it for a blueberries & cream pie next, then a lemon icebox pie. Thanks for sharing your simple yet delicious recipe!"
"I made this and it was so easy and delicious! I had no problem pressing it into my glass pie pan as shown in the picture. I was even able to make little designes around the sides. I used salted butter instead of unsalted and it turned out perfect! I filled it with homemade lemon curd:) yummy!"
"This was a delicious crust...it tasted good before I even cooked it! The only reason I am giving it 4 stars was because I found it almost impossible to press it into my pan! It wouldn't stop sticking to my fingers so I put a little water on my hands and that didn't work..Pam..didn't work...then I used the back of a measuring cup and that didn't work either! So I basically just gobbed it together and did the best I could. I also used this for the Blueberry sour cream pie and it was cooked perfect even without prebaking it. I will try this again...I just have to figure out why it was sticking to me! Oh, I also tried adding a tad more flour...didn't work!"
"Great recipe! Simple and easy to make... tastes great. I made this with recipe #51257. They are perfect together. For that recipe I did not prebake the crust... just rolled it into the pan, poured in the filling and baked according to pie instructions. This made a lot of crust for a 91/2 inch pie. (Which was fine for us!) Thanks!"
