I found this about 30 years ago as a prize winning recipe in a magazine. I've since tweaked it to "healthy-fy" it a little. The crust really is worth the little bit of effort it is. A very different taste and texture from the usual graham cracker crust, nutty and crunchy, really good!
1Preheat oven to 375. Lightly spoon flour into measuring cup. In 9x13 pan, combine crust ingredients. Bake 15-20 mins. until golden brown, stir once while baking. Reserve 1/2 c. crumbs for top.
2Using a spoon, firmly press remaining warm crumb mixture into an ungreased 9 or 10 inch pie plate. Chill crust in frig. until no longer hot.
3In medium bowl blend first three filling ingredients until smooth. Spread over crust. Fold pie filling into whipped topping. Spoon over cream cheese layer. Sprinkle with reserved crumb mix. Chill 1-2 hours before serving. (store in refrigerator).
EASY! PRETTY! WONDERFUL!
4Note: back in the "old" days whipped topping was not recommended. Now days, it has improved and can be reduced fat and/or sugar free and still works great!
