I’ve added  “SAVORY” meals, such as beef, chicken, pork and fish to Annette’s Sweet Treats.  Hope you like it.

Preheat oven to 375 F.  In small bowl, combine all crust ingredients; mix well.  Press in bottom of ungreased 8 or 9 inch pie pan.

Bake at 375 F. for 8 to 10 minutes or until set.  Cool completely.

In a small saucepan, combine vanilla milk  chips and milk.  Cook over low heat, stirring constantly with wire whisk, until melted and smooth.  Cool 30 minutes.  In large bowl, beat whipping cream, powdered sugar and vanilla until soft peaks form.  Gradually fold in cooled milk chips mixture and 1/3 cup crushed candy.  Spoon mixture into cooled crust.  Refrigerate at least 4 hours.

Just before serving, sprinkle with 2 to 3 tablespoons crushed candy.  Store in refrigerator.      8 servings
