Easy Pie Crust
 
Description

This pie crust has far less fat than common versions. It is also quick to make and delicious to eat!

Food as Medicine
Maple syrup is a good source of manganese, a trace mineral that is an essential enzyme cofactor, and important component of energy production and disarming free radicals.

 
Ingredients

1 package (approx. 1/3 pound) natural Graham crackers
2 1/2 tablespoons maple syrup
2 tablespoons sesame tahini
1 1/2 teaspoons water

 
Instructions

1. Pulverize the Graham crackers in a food processor.

2. Add the remaining ingredients and process until well-blended.

3. Press half of mixture into a 9-inch pie pan, firming it well.

4. If an unbaked filling is to be used, bake the crust in an oven heated to 350ºF for 20-30 minutes until lightly browned. Otherwise, add the filling and bake the pie as directed.
