I met Kristin through a forum and she has a passion for creation - everything she makes, she uses in her own home, so you know it is of the most excellent quality and that she adds a dash of love to everything she does.

Using fingers, evenly press half of the crumb crust mixture into the bottom and sides of an 8-or 9-inch pie dish.
