Nut Crust
10 mins (prep 10)

If you have a recipe that calls for a graham-cracker crust, and you don't have the ingredients to make one or just want to try something that's not only simpler but much tastier--try this. Straight from Joy of Cooking, I found this recipe when I made Million Dollar Pie because I didn't feel like crushing graham crackers. It's simple and to die for and requires zero baking. My personal preference is pecans, but you may use walnuts or what the heck--try any nut out for size.
