"This is a very tasty , unrolled pie crust my mom used to make. I like the flavor, but I also really appreciate that I don't have to mess with a rolling pin!"

    Oh, my, gosh! When I volunteered to make four assorted quiches for a potluck last week, I didn't relish the thought of fiddling with homemade crusts, but didn't want to stick people with the frozen kind, either (that's what we usually use for just us). This was SO good, and so easy. I took pictures of my pressing-in technique, which involved two sizes of aluminum pie pans - just sprinkle the dough/crumbs into the larger pan, then press it in using the smaller pan. Amazing! My eyes almost popped when I bit into my first piece and everybody at the potluck was amused when I said out loud, "this is GOOD." All thanks to the crust - thanks for a *fantastic* & easy recipe!

    Very easy for the breakfast quiche! We're at the end of the month and cleaning the pantry before shopping again, so I had no butter. I substituted shortening instead. Didn't have the buttery taste I expect with the butter, but it was very good as the crust for the quiche! I can only imagine how good it will be when I have all the ingredients. I have saved this and plan to use it often!

    Very good, very easy, very rich (yum) and very crumbly!

    Easy to follow instructions for an oh-so-easy-to-make-pie-crust. I had a similar recipe years ago, long lost, so I was really pleased to find this one. I used brown sugar – and used slightly less – as I was making a pie crust for a savoury quiche: Melody H.’s Breakfast Quiche Recipe #105666. A very nice pastry indeed. It will be my regular recipe now. When using it for sweet pies, I think I’ll try it next time with a couple of drops of vanilla. Thank you for sharing this recipe!
