First let me say this is the recipe used by Mr. B's Bistro in New Orleans, one of my favorite restaurants in the whole wide world. The recipe was in the newspaper-- and I was thrilled! This is now my go-to crust for pumpkin and sweet potato pies, as well. The cinnamon and nutmeg add a little color to the crust, in addition to a really nice taste.

The prep time includes the time the dough spends chilling and coming back to room temp.
