Cake Mix Pie Crust

Welcome to the February Pinterest Challenge Blog Hop, hosted by My Pinterventures.  A group of bloggers get together and motivate one another to not just pin, but to actually try those pins! This month I decided to try this Cake Mix Pie Crust because it sounded very interesting and tasty. I like finding new shortcuts for tasty treats.


I love baking pies and love to make them to take to my friends and neighbors. I wanted to see if this recipe, shared by Hoosier Homemade from a Duncan Hines field trip, would be a go-to option for quick pie baking.  This is one of those recipes where the possibilities are endless.


I'm making a vanilla crust with a salted caramel cheesecake filling.  You can make this pie crust in any flavor that a cake mix comes in!  Think of the possibilities!  I'm already thinking of the Easter pies that I am going to make!


This crust isn't like the pie crust you are familiar with.  This has a cookie like taste which goes well with pudding style fillings.  You pre-bake this pie crust, so you don't want to use it to make a pie you have to bake the filling. This is for no-bake fillings.
I consider this pie crust a great success!  It has a cookie-like taste and texture and compliments my pie filling very well.
