Almond Flour Pie Crust
2 1/2 cups almond flour
1/4 cup coconut sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup coconut, melted and cooled
1 large egg, well-beaten
1 teaspoon pure almond extract
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
Grease a 9-inch pie pan or tart pan (removable bottom).
Add the almond flour, coconut sugar and salt to a mixing bowl. Mix well until combined.
Pour in the melted coconut oil and almond extract and stir until large clumps form.
Add in the beaten egg and stir well. Dough maybe very crumbly but continue to mix until it resembles a dough consistency.
Transfer dough to greased pie pan.
Press the almond dough into the pie pan and up the sides of the pan until it is evenly distributed. Optional to flute the edges if using a pie pan.
Use a fork to poke holes around the bottom and sides of the crust to allow air flow and ensure it doesn’t rise and pull away from the pie pan.
To avoid burning edges of crust while pie is baking, cover with aluminum foil.
Bake crust on the center rack of the preheated oven for 12 minutes. Remove foil and continue baking for 3-5 minutes more. The edges should look just slightly golden-brown.
Cool completely on a rack before pouring in any wet ingredients.
Can freeze crust (up to l month) for later use.
