DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. You will need one buttered, nine-inch deep-dish pie pan either a light-colored or glass pan.
  • Place the flour, sugar, cinnamon, and salt in a small bowl and stir to combine.
  • Place the nuts in a food processor or blender and pulse just long enough to chop the nuts finely, not into a paste. Scrape the nuts into the flour mixture and stir to combine.
  • Add the melted butter and combine well.
  • Press the mixture into the buttered pie pan making certain that the crust is of even thickness.
  • Bake for 15 to 18 minutes or until it just starts to brown on the edges. Do not over bake. A light-colored or glass pan will absorb less heat than a dark one and help ensure against over baking.
