nut butter and help!

Someone (was it Apryl?) had written and asked about the chickpea butter
measurements. The recipe calls for:

4 cups canned chickpeas
2 Tbsp cornstarch
1/3 cup frozen applejuice concentrate, thawed
1 Tbsp vanilla
1 Tbsp cinnamon
1 1/2 cups bean liquid

I found that the original recipe called for roasting the chickpeas FAR too
long (originally 1 1/2 hours!!), and the addition of cornstarch made the
butter too thick.  I end up roasting 1 can of beans, subbing sweetener for
the juice concentrate, and adding the bean liquid to make the appropriate
consistancy.  The idea of using roasted chickpeas is super, and I highly
recommend trying it.

Now, I hang my head in shame and would like to ask someone a BIG favour.  I
did the 'hit-the-delete-button-too-soon' thing and wipped out the GREAT
recipe for a ricotta cheese pie crust.  Is it possible that someone might
send it privately to me?  It would be much appreciated.
