I've got a delicious grain-free and gluten-free pie crust recipe to share with you today....just in time for holiday baking! Use it to make your favorite pumpkin pie, apple pie, berry pie, or chicken pot pie (pictured above). I've tested it with many different filling recipes and it works beautifully every time.
This recipe uses a mixture of blanched almond flour and arrowroot powder or tapioca flour. I've tested it using organic, pastured butter as well as a dairy-free version using Nutiva's Vegan Superfood Shortening. You can order organic blanched almond flour from Nuts.com (though I've found it is not as finely ground as other flours and does not work as well for pie crusts). I've also noticed that Costco sells blanched almond flour which also works beautifully in this recipe.
