For the Pie Crust
1Adjust the oven rack to the 2nd level position and pre-heat the oven to 350ºF.
2Using a food processor, pulverize the Bahlsen Delice Puff Pastry Twists into fine crumbs. Add in the sugar, melted butter, and vanilla extract, and blend together until the pie crust mixture forms.
3Spoon the mixture into the 9″ pie plate and press into the bottom and sides using either a spatula or your fingers. To level the bottom of the crust, you can use the bottom of a measuring cup or drinking glass.
4Place the pie crust into the oven and bake for 8-10 minutes.
5Remove from oven and allow to cool. After the pie crust has cooled, if you like, you can place it in the refrigerator to keep cool until the key lime pie filling is ready.
