Pecan Nut Crust Recipe
This fabulous baked pie crust made from ground pecans, sugar, cinnamon and butter, promising a nice taste to contrast any smooth and creamy custard pie. It 's perfect for an ice cream pie, topped with caramel sauce. Or a lemony, cream cheese filling would be smashing.
A delightful, creamy-sweet pudding concoction fills this chilled pie with a rich pecan crust.
Ground walnuts, butter and sugar are combined, pressed into the bottom and sides of a 9-inch pie plate and baked. This is the perfect crust for a custard or ice cream no-bake pie. And it freezes beautifully.
OH WOW! This is SO incredibly easy and I liked it better than a wheat crust! I have been looking for a dairy and gluten free pie crust for my son. I made this crust dairy free by using coconut oil in place of the butter. I baked the crust for about 8 mins at 350, and let it cool. THen I filled it with a gluten/casein free pumpkin filling. I was afraid the nut crust might burn (it was starting to smell that way) so I placed a piece of foil shiny side down under it and a strip of foil shiny side out around it. It worked like a charm! The crust came out perfectly! I highly recommend this recipe. Even a beginner can make this!
"A light crust for this delicate fish won't cover up the taste of the fish itself. Plus it is quick and easy."
Baked salmon fillets with a crunchy pecan coating make an excellent main course.
This is the most amazing pecan pie. Once you start eating it you can't stop.
Very good, I used it for a Libby's pumpkin pie (recipe on can of pumpkin). Was a great tasty subtitute for the flour crust since I'm on a low carb diet. Like the other reviewers, I used Splenda for the sugar. Only reason I'm rating it 4 stars is because it came out a little too thick even in my huge 9" pie dish. Just use it a bit at a time as you build the crust and it's perfect.
Trout fillets are coated in crunchy seasoned pecans and baked for an easy but elegant seafood dinner.
