Shredded Wheat Pie Crust

From my dad's creative kitchen comes a new "healthy" pie crust.  No seriously, it's healthy.  Now what you fill it with might not be but I'm not judging you.

Can I also compliment the beautiful photograph that my sister took?  Seeing that I'm not in Montana to take such a picture, I had help from my sister, nephew and dad. I think that's my nephew's hand in the picture. You're all making me home sick!!!

This particular pie is filled with his Sugarless Sweet Potato Craisin recipe as I previously posted about here.

The shredded wheat adds a nice crunch to the crust and holds together well, great texture and taste.  Everyone who tried this recipe loved it.  Perfect for those people trying to add more fiber into their diet or just try something new.  I think he's really onto something here, great job dad!

How many mini wheats equals 1 shredded wheat biscuit?? Evelyn

Hi Evelyn, each large biscuit equals a little less than 1 ounce, so you would need approximately 5 ounces of mini's. Thanks!
