Re-work rhe crust recipe I think the test kitchen should tweka this crust recipe. I suspect the canola oil and Neufchatel are the ingredients causing problems. Pros: Tasty filling Cons: Crust was a flop
Oops, I see I should have read your blog on healthier pie crust.............I used the food processor rather than your by hand directions.........that is indeed where I went wrong resulting in my hard crust. Like I said though.......the taste was still there anyway!
I baked this delicious pie yesterday and it is as good as it is nutritious! Thanks for the forgiveness upfront about the crust. Mine was a disaster so I found one at Whole Foods Market and it worked great for this pie. I will be making it many times in the future.
This is a most flavorful pie, made even more enjoyable by the realization that it is very low in fat. My efforts at making the crust according to the recipe were unsuccessful, however, Luckily, I found a whole wheat crust in the frozen food section of Whole Foods Market; in fact, the package contained two crusts, so I froze the other. It was perfect, unlike my lumpy, dry concoction that never came together. The sweet, crunchy, crumbly topping was a delight and just what I hoped it'd be ! I'll make this one many times!
