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!

I have lived in Utah my whole life, have been married 11 years and have 4 children. I have recently gone back to work now that they are all in school and we have put my oldest into a privat high school. As I am getting older I am feeling very nostalgic for the foods and traditions that I grew up with and want to make sure that my children get a chance to experience all of the fun Lebanese foods and things that I did when I was growing up. When I have spare time it is spent playing with my family or hanging out at my church, and no, even though I have lived in Utah my whole life I am not LDS.
