Spiced Pecan Pie Crust
This pairs great with our Pumpkin Pie (see page TK) but would also add a new twist to a New York style cheesecake.

INGREDIENTS
1 whole cinnamon stick
1 whole nutmeg
¾ cup pecans, toasted and cooled
2/3 cup graham cracker crumbs
3 tablespoons light brown sugar
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
½ teaspoon table salt
¼ cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled

Instructions
Preheat oven to 375°F. Lightly coat a 9-inch pie plate with nonstick cooking spray. Reserve.
Place the cinnamon stick, nutmeg and pecans in the bowl of the Cuisinart Spice Grinder. Pulse 2 to 3 times, and then process until finely ground, about 30 seconds.
Place the spices, pecans, graham cracker crumbs and sugars in a medium bowl. Whisk to combine. Slowly add the butter and vanilla until mixture is moist. Note: all of the butter may not be needed.
