from http://lowcarbdiets.about.com/od/desserts/r/almondpiecrust.htm

  • 1 and 1/2 cups almond meal (ground up almonds, I ground mine in a coffee grinder)
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter – I subbed coconut oil
  • Artificial sweetener equal to 3 tablespoons sugar

Heat oven to 350 F. Melt the butter (if the pie pan is microwave safe, melt the butter in it) and mix the ingredients up in the pan and pat into place with your fingertips.  Requires a lot of patting and finessing to cover the pan like a crust.

Bake for about 10 minutes until the crust is beginning to brown. After 8 minutes, check every minute or so, because once it starts to brown it goes quickly.

After crust is baked add your pie filling and bake as directed – probably best to cover any crust that is exposed with foil so it does not burn :)

The crust on these looks wonderful too
