Ground Pecan Crust (Low Carb)

Ground Pecan Crust (Low Carb) created by Annacia

Good for cheesecake and pumpkin or Jello pudding pies, but not strong enough for a pie with runny/loose filling. Do NOT substitute margarine or oil for the butter. (learned this the hard way).

ingredients

directions

  • Grind the pecans. Fine ground will help the crust hold together better, coarse gives you a crunchier crust.
  • Add the Splenda to the ground nuts.
  • Add the butter (softened or outright melted).
  • Press mixture into a pie plate or springform pan.
  • Bake for 5-10 minutes between 350 and 450, depending on how toasted you want it.
  • You can also make this crust ahead of time.

    This is very simple, tasty and as crusts go not bad on the health scale. I used very fine ground pecans and got a lovely fine grained crust that set beautifully. After 10 mins at 400F it came out of the oven soft and puffed but as it cooled a bit I was easily able to make a defined deeper bed with a perfect outcome. I'll use this again.
