All Nut Crumb Crust

All Nut Crumb Crust

Serves 8 (one 9-inch pie shell)

This almond-rich pie crust is just right for making chocolate or banana cream pies. Spiced pumpkin pie is a perfect match for it, too.

  • 2 1/4 cups finely ground blanched almonds
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup

Thoroughly mix together all ingredients in a medium bowl. Using fingers, press dough into a 9-inch pie plate, evenly pressing up the sides. For pies that call for pre-baked shell, bake at 350°F for 15 to 20 minutes. Cool and then fill with desired pie filling. For baking pies directly in this crust, to prevent burning, keep oven temperatures down to 325 to 350°F and adjust cooking times as needed.
