I have to say, now that I am living without my beloved food processor (there's no room in our motorhome), I have found this is the best way to enjoy a wonderful pie. I've used the "crust" portion and baked the tastiest peach pie also! Life is good! All I can say, is TRY IT!
Prep: 20 min. Bake: 40 min.
