Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Line the bottom, of a 9 in round pie pan, with parchment paper, grease with butter or your favorite non-stick spray.
  • In a small bowl, whisk egg, vanilla.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the almond flour, sukrin gold and sea salt, until well blended.
  • Add melted butter to large bowl of flour mixture. Stir to combine.
  • Add egg mixture to large bowl of flour mixture. Stir to combine.
  • Press pie dough into pie pan. Smoosh it into all the creveses & form the crust as you go. Use a fork to poke holes across the pie crust, so it won't bubble as it cooks.
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes until golden on edges.

Notes

  1. You can omit the vanilla if making a savory pie.
  2. Bake for only 10-12 minutes, if you're making a pie that needs further cooking.
  3. Check pie crust edge, when halfway done cooking. If it's already getting golden brown, place a pic crust cover or tin foil around just the crust edge.
