pie crust

ok, think i will make a cherry pie using this recipe for the dough

1 cup almond flour
1 egg
1 cap Pure Vanilla Extract
1 tbsp cf Margerine
1/2 tsp cinnamon
enough sugar substitute or honey to sweeten crust
pinch of salt


1. Mix all ingredients together until they form a ball. The ball should have a little moisture to it, but not liquid.

2. You can taste it to make sure there is some sweetness and hint of cinnamon and butter.

3. Smooth pieces of dough into pie tin with fingers until the crust is made.

4. If making pudding/cream pies, bake crust first at about 325 F until just turning a slight golden brown.

Note: If pre-baking (for best results) vent the bottom of the crust using the tines of a fork and use pie weights such as dry beans inside the crust while baking. .................................
