This easy pie crust recipe is a great choice for beginning cooks. The crust is crumbly, slightly chewy, sweet and nutty - a perfect foil for almost any chilled filling.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes

Yield: 1 9" pie crust


  • 1-1/4 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped nuts
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Combine flour, nuts and brown sugar. Cut in butter until a crumb mixture forms. Do not form into ball; place crumbs in a 9" square baking pan, and bake at 400 degrees for 10-12 minutes, stirring frequently, until golden brown. Cool the crumbs and then press firmly into a 9" pie pan.
