Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1 tablespoon coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup arrowroot flour
  • 4 tablespoons grass-fed butter, cold (or ghee or palm shortening)
  • 1 pasture-raised egg

Instructions

  1. Combine dry ingredients in the food processor and mix.
  2. Add the egg, mix for a few sections.

  3. Add the cold butter, 1 tablespoon at a time until a dough forms, on a slow/medium speed.

  4. Scrape the dough out onto a piece of parchment paper.
  5. You can chill to for 1 hour in the fridge and roll it out with a rolling pin (work quickly because as it warms it gets soft), or you can forgo the chilling and press the dough into the pie plate using you fingers to make smooth pie crust about 1/6" thick.
  6. Use a fork to poke holes into the bottom pie crust.
  7. Bake as 350 degrees for 12 minutes (if it's going to be baked again) or 15-18 minutes for use with a no-bake recipe.
