Nuts put crunch into pie crusts

If you would like to turn a good pie into a great pie, rethink the crust.

Using these nut-based pie crusts will really jazz up an old favorite. The pecan and almond crusts are delicious with a chocolate or banana cream filling. And pairing them with coconut cream is also a winner.

Lemon meringue pairs well with the pistachio crust, and pumpkin or apple go the extra mile with the walnut curst.

Actually, it’s hard to come up with anything that wouldn’t taste good with nuts… So go ahead and knock their socks off.

Come up with your own pairings. Don’t be afraid to experiment a little with these.
