Almond Meal Pie Crust
Originally from Fountain Avenue Kitchen.
- 2 cups blanched almond meal
- 2 tbsp granulated sugar
- ¼ tsp baking soda
- ¼ tsp kosher salt
- 1 egg
- ¼ tsp vanilla
- 2 tbsp cold butter
Butter a 9-inch pie dish, and preheat the oven to 350°F.
Place the flour, sugar, baking soda and salt in a food processor and pulse several times.
Add the egg and vanilla, and then scatter small pieces of butter over top. Pulse until the mixture forms a ball.
Press the dough evenly into a 9-inch pie dish, working the dough all the way up the sides.
Prick the crust several times over the bottom and sides with a fork, and then bake for 8 to 12 minutes, until the bottom is just dry.
