DIRECTIONS

  • In a blender or food processor, combine the oats and almonds and grind to a coarse powder.
  • Transfer to a large bowl.
  • Add the flour and mix well.
  • Drizzle on the oil and incorporate it with a pastry blender or your fingers until the mixture resembles coarse cornmeal.
  • Sprinkle in enough of the water (mixing it lightly with a fork) to moisten all the flour and make a dough that you can form into a ball.
  • Flatten the dough into a circle about 1/2-inch thick On a lightly floured board or a sheet of waxed paper, roll the dough into a thin (about 1/8 inch) circle about 11 inches diameter.
  • Line a 9-inch pie pan with the dough and trim the edges to leave a 1/2-inch overhang all around.
  • Use the overhang to form a fluted edge.
  • Place the crust in the freezer for at least 20 minutes.
  • Fill the shell and bake it according to the directions of your specific recipe.
  • *To bake the crust without a filling; Preheat the oven to 425°F.
  • Line the prepared pie crust with aluminum foil and place it on a baking sheet.
  • Bake for 8 minutes.
  • Remove it from the oven and discard the foil.
  • Bake for 7 minutes.
  • Let the crust cool before filling.
