Almond Meal Pie Crust

Entry posted by domesticactivist · - 1,965 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!

[b]Almond Crust[/b] 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.
