Oatmeal-Nut Pie Crust

This is a wonderful pie crust and is especially good for cheesecake.  I prefer it over a graham cracker crust.  The walnuts provide great depth of flavor.

Oatmeal-Nut Pie Crust

1 cup uncooked rolled oats (gluten free if necessary)
3 Tbsp. brown sugar
2/3 cup minced walnuts
1/3 cup margarine (or nut butter, or vegetable oil, scant)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Spread oats in large, shallow pan.  Bake 10 minutes to toast.  Toss with sugar, nuts and melted margarine. 

Press into pie pan.  Refrigerate while making filling.

Yummy!  Can be used this way for a pudding or fruit filling - or - filled and baked again as for cheesecake.
