Butter a 9″ pie plate.

Make the crust:

Mix your ingredients until it starts

to come together, I used a fork.

Using your fingers, mix until it forms

a ball with all the flour incorporated

into the butter. There is no rolling

with this pie crust. Just press it into the

buttered pie plate, pressing it up the

sides just a little. Let me tell you, it is so

good! It isn’t like a regular pie crust.

Bake the crust in a preheated 350 degree

oven until it is just starting to brown.

Let your baked pie crust cool.

Now, that all being said, this year I decided to make the recipe a bit more fun and turn it into a handheld cookie!  Trust me, this idea was also out of convenience…
