"Nutty Crust"...CinStraw

Straws Kitchen


I was answering a question on here in 'Groups'.....and thought there may be others who needed a crust made of nuts.
Sooo, I decided to just post it!!!

It's "Not" my Original recipe but one I've used for years.
Therefore I do not have a photo of one at this time, will post one when I make one of them again.
