Almond Meal Pie Crust

Posted by domesticactivist, in Recipes, GAPS 05 June 2011 · 1,627 views

Here is an easy crumb crust, both for baked and unbaked pies. If using it for a sweet dessert, I add a half tablespoon of honey. If for savory, like a quiche, I leave the honey out. Enjoy!

Almond Crust makes a single 9" pie crust
3 c crispy almonds
1/4 t fine sea salt
1/2 T honey (optional)
4 T unsalted butter, cut into 8 or 10 chunks
1 large egg, lightly beaten

  • Grind almonds in food processor until about the consistency of corn meal.
  • Add salt, honey (if using), and butter. Pulse until the consistency of bread crumbs.
  • With processor running, add egg all at once. Run until the mixture forms a loose ball (about 30 seconds).
  • Gather mixture into a ball, wrap in plastic wrap, and chill for 15 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Press into 9" pie plate. Chill an additional 10 minutes.
  • Cover edge of crust with foil to prevent scorching. Bake 15-20 minutes until slightly puffy and lightly browned.
  • Fill according to recipe.
