    This recipe is incredible - much better than a graham cracker crust. I now use it for all my cream pies and cheesecakes. It's a real hit at family dinners.

    For a fruit pie, I'd suggest baking the bottom crust as directed, and making a crumble in place of the top crust, or go on and try making another pie crust recipe, only put it on top. Bake the pie according to directions...just use your senses to directions.
