To make FOOD.com's fat-free pie crust, preheat the oven to 475 degrees Fahrenheit.

Roll this mixture into a ball and place it between two pieces of flour-dusted wax paper. Next, flatten the ball into a circle and arrange in a pie-pan that has been sprayed with nonfat cooking spray. Cut off the excess crust at the edges, prick the bottom with a fork and brush with a layer of beaten egg whites before baking in the oven for 10 minutes.
