Basic Pie Crust

MSCD 6-month recipe

1 cup whole oats
1 cup oat flour
¼ cup applesauce
3 Tbs. butter, finely diced
1 Tbs. honey
1 ½ Tbs. water
1 tsp. cinnamon
pinch of salt
extra virgin olive oil

Lightly chop oats in a blender. In a bowl, combine chopped oats with remaining ingredients, except olive oil, forming a ball by working the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients with your hands until the entire ball of dough is moist. Drizzle the dough ball with olive oil to coat. Butter or oil a deep 10-inch pie dish. Press the crust dough to an even thickness along the bottom and sides of the pie dish. Create a decorative edge on the crust with a fork or your fingers.

If making a pie that needs to be baked, fill pie shell with filling and bake as pie recipe recommends. If making a refrigerator pie that does not need to be cooked, first bake the pie shell at 350° for 12 minutes. Allow to cool to room temperature before filling.
