The first complaint about the errors in the recipe on this page were written 10 years ago or something. Martha must have had the time to correct those errors. Is this why some many of her recipes receive lower ratings than one might otherwise suspect? It'a all in the details, Martha!

Read the "ingredients" list & then read the instructions...WHERE IS THE FLOUR (listed in instructions, but not in ingredients) Please fix this. (And, if you need a GOOD proofreader, send me an emal! ;-)

On a Martha Bakes episode, she adds 1 cup of flour along with the sugar after the chopped walnuts, butter, egg yolk and vanilla have been initially mixed. This works.

Just made this without reading the comments and didn't include ANY flour because it wasn't in the ingredients list. It burned and made a mess in the oven! Also, it tells you to preheat the oven and THEN says to freeze the crust for 30 minutes. Please proofread!

RE: Perfect Nut Crust There is a mistake in the list of ingredients. The amount of flour is not listed. I want to make this crust, so please tell me the amount of flour.
