This gluten-free almond flour pie crust is perfect for a delicious dessert. It’s super easy to make and won’t take too much time to prepare quickly. Once made, all you need is a delicious filling to pour into this tasty pie crust.

You can use this pie crust for both sweet and savory dishes. If you’re using it for savory, I recommend leaving the sugar out of the crust. Also replacing the coconut with something like cornstarch might be a good idea.

Blind baking is a must for this pie crust as you will need to make sure the egg is cooked, and the crust is strengthened. It’s good practice to use pie weights to help the pie crust keep its shape.

You can prepare this almond flour pie crust a day or two ahead of when you need it. However, with that said, I recommend that you prepare and bake it fresh.

Unlike the coconut pie crust, this crust can be quite thin and still retain its shape and strength. It’s perfect if you need an excellent thin base that will still hold a filling quite well.

Cooking Tips:

  • As I mentioned above, you can leave the caster sugar out if you want to use this crust for a savory dish.
  • Coconut can be substituted with another ingredient if you’re not a fan of the taste of coconut. Something like cornstarch or flaxseed is the perfect substitute.
  • If the pie mixture is looking too wet, then add a bit more almond flour. Be very careful as you don’t want to make it too dry.
  • Keep an eye on the pie as it is blind baking. It will help make sure you avoid burning the pie crust.

There are so many pie fillings that you can add to this pie crust. One of my favorites is a gluten-free key lime pie. It tastes as good as it looks. It’s the perfect gluten-free dessert to impress your friends and family.

Another filling that you should try is a chicken pot pie. This pastry will work perfectly as a crust on top. Of course, you don’t get that lovely fluffy texture of puff pastry, but it’s still delicious.

I hope that this gluten-free almond flour pie crust cooks out to be as great as it was for me. If you have any feedback, tips or anything else, then please feel free to let me know.
