FOR BAKED DESSERTS OR PIES:
Spray baking dish or pie pan with non stick butter.
Combine pretzels and sugar in a food processor; pulse to medium fine crumbs. Add the melted and slightly cooled butter and pulse until crumbs are evenly moist.
Press mixture in the bottom of baking dish or pie pan and up the sides as high as you can. Fill with your favorite dessert recipe.
Empty processor bowl onto a lightly floured surface and knead a few times. Divide into 2 discs,one a little larger than the other. Wrap the smaller in plastic wrap and chill while rolling out the larger disc and then gently place in a 9-inch pie pan. Chill. Make filling.Homemade Apple Pie is especially good baked in this crust..
If making something baked in a 9x13 dish use and roll out both pieces of dough and place in bottom of a sprayed baking dish.
