  • tip 2
    You'll need 1 pomegranate to get 1 cup seeds for this recipe. If a fresh pomegranate is not available, substitute sweetened dried cranberries in pomegranate juice.
  • tip 3
    The crust can be prepared a day ahead and refrigerated. Let stand at room temperature to soften slightly before rolling.
