I love using these recipes for desserts..You get the sweet and salty at the same time and the raw sugar gives your desserts or pies that Maple like flavor. About the milk or cream in the recipe use to brush on double pie crust desserts before baking and also sprinkle more raw sugar on top after you cut in your steam vents... Looks like regular pie crust but tastes altogether fantastic...enjoy these recipes with your next dessert...
1For Non-Baked Desserts or 9-inch 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.
2For Baked Desserts or 9-inch Pies:
In a food processor mix flour,and sugar.Pulse in pretzels until they are hardly noticeable in the mix. Add butter and pulse until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add water one tablespoon at a time and pulse until dough forms.
3For Baked Pies and Dessert (cont.)
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.
