    Chey's Note:

    My Grandmother-In-Law gave me this recipe because so many of our family have celiac disease or are allergic to wheat. I love it so much, that I now use it for all of my pies. If you don't like almonds, you can use any other nuts instead

      This turned out really well for me and everyone loved it. The recipe is a bit non specific though, which is why I give it 4 stars. It doesn't specify if the almonds should be skin on or blanched. As someone new to gluten free baking, this was a question I had. After some research, I decided on using blanched. Also, how finely should they be chopped? Again, the recipe leaves you guessing. I put them in my food processor and processed them until quite mealy and fine as it seemed to make sense to do it that way. I used this crust as the stand in for a wheat pastry crust for a pumpkin pie. I prepared the crust, poured in the filling and baked it for 55 minutes at 375. The crust was a little over browned around the outside, but otherwise held up. I would adjust the oven temp down next time and bake slightly longer as necessary. I truly appreciate having a 'go to' wheat free pie crust now. Thanks for the recipe!

      My go to pie crust. Have celiacs in the family and no one even realizes this crust is gluten free. I melt the butter and put the almonds thru the bullet to make them flour. Fantastic.

      This is my new favorite gluten free pie crust recipe. Goes well with most pie fillings. My only recommendation is to make sure to spread the pie crust fairly thin as it could be hard to cut otherwise.
