Sweet Potato Chip Pie Crust

2 cups flour
1 cup crushed sweet potato chips*
3/4 cup cold butter, sliced
1/4-1/2 cup cold water
pinch nutmeg
pinch ginger

Preheat oven to 350. Place flour, spices and potato chips in a food processor and pulse once or twice to mix. Add the butter and pulse until it forms pebble-sized clumps. Add the cold water and pulse until the mixture forms a ball. Remove to a pie pan, and spread, using your fingertips, evenly across the bottom and up the sides. The dough will feel more like a thick paste than pie dough. Prick the bottom thoroughly with a fork and bake for 10 minutes then check on the crust. Prick again if it is rising very high and continue to bake an additional 10 minutes.

*I used an entire 6 oz bag of Terra Chips Sweet Potato & Cinnamon Chips

My thoughts:

I know this recipe sounds a little wacky but everyone who had it raved about it. It has a great, savory potato flavor which went wonderfully with sweet potato cream cheese pie filling.
