LOOKING for: Non-graham cracker crust for key lime pie

annova914February 22, 2011

I can't seem to find a crust for key lime pie that doesn't involve graham crackers (I did find one that involved flour, brown sugar and melted butter but it sounded very sweet). Usually I put my filling into a Keebler's shortbread readymade crust but that's just for family. I'd like to serve this at a small dinner party so I'm on the search for something I can place in a pie plate. I do have the refrigerated pie crusts that you roll out. If I use that, how long should I bake the crust since I also have to bake the actual pie for 10 minutes? And should I cover the crust with foil so that it doesn't bake too much the first time in? Thanks.

This is a post script: I just tried baking the roll out refrigerated crust and it's awful...the pastry has no sweetness. So I guess I'm ISO a crust I can make out of crushed gingersnaps or vanilla cookies, maybe some sliced almonds crunched up in it? (my original post took 24 hours to show up - is there something wrong with this website lately?)

You really need some thing sweet for the crust. You can try the other cookies if you want but to me it won't be Key Lime Pie.
