Can you then bake something in the pie crust? Or does this only work with non-baked pies (like banana cream, etc.)?

Yes, you can definitely use this pie crust to make any pie recipes that call for a pie crust. Happy Baking :)


how much sugar? I didn't see it in the ingredints

almost 9 years ago

It should be 2 tablespoons of sugar. If you want your pie crust to be sweeter, add another additional 2 tablespoons sugar. Hope this helps! Happy Cooking :)


do you add the egg? It's in the list of ingredients but is not mentioned in the directions. ?
