Oatmeal-Nut Pie Crust

This is a wonderful pie crust and is especially good for cheesecake.  I prefer it over a graham cracker crust.  Walnuts = brain food.

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 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 filling - or - filled and baked again as for cheesecake.

That looks like a really good crust, and maybe it would be a great crunchy topping for a fruit cobbler, too.
