This is the perfect crust to use with my corn syrup-free pecan pie recipe. You can also mix up the nuts you use to add some nice flavors that compliment your filling. Best of all you can splurge on pie without wheat flour!
It takes some time to get the dough spread out into a nice smooth coating but take your time. Its worth it!
The shell is partially baked before adding wet ingredients for baked-in fillings or fully baked for no-bake pies.
2-1/2 cups Almond Meal
1/2 cup Baking Soda
1/2 cup Palm Shortening, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla
1. Preheat oven to 325.
2. Mix together all ingredients and smooth into a pie plate or tart shell.
3. Bake 10 minutes if you are going to fill with wet ingredients or 25-35 minutes if you are using a no-cook filling.
FTC disclosure: I received the pecans from Oh! Nuts to use in a recipe.
