The Ultimate Crust.

1 Jun

This crust is a winner. I guarantee you will love it! With it’s simplicity, versatility, healthfulness, and of course deliciousness, it is a great recipe to have on hand whether you’re making pie, torte, tart, or other baked goody that calls for crust. Try it, you will not be disappointed!   — Alex


  • 3/4 cup oats
  • 1/3 cup flour (whole wheat, oat, whatever your preference)
  • 1/2 cup walnuts
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda


  1. Preheat oven to 300
  2. Place all ingredients in a cuisinart and blend thoroughly until it forms a moist dough (should be moist and sticky, but not dry and clumpy, and not runny).
  3. Grease a pie tin, and plop the dough mixture into the pie tin, using the back of a spoon or spatula to evenly and gently smooth the dough around the entire bottom and up the sides. Make sure it is as even as possible!
  4. Using a fork, poke holes all over the dough.
  5. Place in the oven for about 10 minutes, until it just starts to turn golden brown. Remove from oven, let cool 5 minutes, and it’s ready for your pie or tart filling!

yields: one 9-10″ crust
