Almond Flour Pie Crust (from Lea Valle. Holy Grail Status: The Perfect Paleo Pie Crust. http://www.foodrepublic.com/recipes/holy-grail-status-perfect-paleo-pie-crust-recipe/)

  • 1 c. almond flour
  • 1/2 c. arrowroot starch flour
  • 1/2 c. coconut flour
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt
  • 1/2 c. (1 stick) butter, cold and cut into chunks
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg white plus 1 tsp. water (optional)

Combine and stir the flours and sea salt in a large bowl. Dump into a food processor (or use a dough blender) and process with the butter until uniform crumbs form. Add the egg and process again until a dough sticks together. Take out of processor, make a dough ball, wrap it in plastic and put in the fridge for 20 min. Roll out the dough between two pieces of wax or parchment paper until ~1/4 inch thin. Bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit 15-20 min. (fully baked) or 10-12 min. (partially baked).
