Thanks to the reviewer who tried this recipe without the sugar - and let me know it does *not* work that way after all. I had not tried it that way myself before posting; now that I know, I've updated the recipe. It really is a great dessert pie crust, though, as the other reviews confirm. This pie crust is best with fillings which contain milk or cheese - for example, it goes very well with Fudgy Peanut Butter Ricotta Pie (Recipe #101297). In general, it's a good substitute for a graham cracker crumb crust.
