This is a delicate crust that is good for soft fillings or frozen pies because it doesn't overwhelm the subtle taste or texture of the filling. Because the fillings are very rich, this crust is designed to fit a round 1 layer cake pan, or a shallow pie tin
Note: This is a very thin crust. If you want a thicker crust, increase the amounts in the recipe.

The recipe suggests you blanch the tofu first, but I don't see the point of that so I'm omitting it from the recipe. If you want to blanch the tofu, it suggests doing it for 3 minutes.
