From the Test Kitchen

Don't have a deep-dish pie plate? Use a 9-inch pie plate, the same amount of crust mixture and 4 1/2 cups of the filling. If desired, spoon remaining filling into three 6-ounce custard cups and bake in a 375 degrees F oven for 25 minutes or until set.

Flaky Peanut Crust

Directions

  1. Place flour, salt, and peanuts in the bowl of a food processor; cover and pulse to combine. Add the butter. Pulse until pieces are pea-size. With processor running, pour in ice water, 1 tablespoon at a time, until it just starts to come together. Gather mixture into a ball, kneading gently until it holds together.
  2. On a lightly floured surface use your hands to slightly flatten pastry. Roll pastry from center to edges into a circle about 13 inches in diameter.
  3. Wrap pastry circle around the rolling pin. Unroll into a 10-inch deep-dish pie plate. Ease pastry into pie plate without stretching it.
  4. Trim pastry to 1/2 inch beyond edge of pie plate. Fold under extra pastry even with the plate's edge. Crimp as desired.
