This recipe came from "The Farmers Almanac Blue Ribbon Recipes" cookbook, used for a pumpkin pie. I used it last night to make Bev's Chocolate Chip Pie. It turned out great. It can be prebaked for a cream-filled pie, or unbaked for a pie that must go into the oven. You could use this recipe as an alternative to just about any "crumb crust". Hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
