Alternative crusts for pumpkin pie
- Thanks4Food Nov 5, 2012 01:15 PM
Okay, there's regular pie crust and there's graham cracker crust. I've also seen chocolate cookie and gingersnap crusts. Got any other ideas? I'm not that fond of pie crust myself and would happily eat pumpkin flan, but I don't want to disappoint the pie lovers (too much).
I'm considering Martha Stewart's "Press-in Shortbread Pie Crust" http://www.marthastewart.com/319153/p..., but would like other ideas from y'all first.
Could try a Yeasted crust, I think nytimes has one, (basically a deep dish pizza, but sweet and with pumpkin)
or rise krispies crust ,
Or filo /puff pastry crust
Or make a crust w granola
You can grind up whatever kind of non-sticky cookies or dry cereal or nuts you like, or a combination, and add melted butter or coconut oil, press into a pan, and bake. Since coconut oil is very firm when chilled, any leftovers won't get soggy. There's probably a pumpkin version of Bisquick's "impossible" pie recipe, which would be a compromise between flan and crust.
