Spiced Cream Cheese Pie Crust With Bonus Cream Cheese Buttons
Do you enjoy making pie crusts from scratch but get disappointed when you see the crust from your grandma’s famous apple pie recipe left on everyone’s plate?
This recipe for spiced cream cheese pie crust is one of my more popular homemade pie crusts for sweet pies. I rarely see leftover crust on the plates. Most everyone will be eating it along with your homemade pumpkin pie. So give it a try at your family’s next Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner. The only thing you will be throwing away is that re-gifted fruit cake.
