Beware of salt!

April 23, 2016
I made this crust to go with the lemon buttermilk icebox pie. The 1 tsp of kosher salt was way over the top for us. Maybe salty crust is a thing that I'm not used to, but this was strange and distracting to me. I will omit it or greatly reduce it next time . Otherwise, it would have been amazing, I'm certain!
