It’s by far the closest recipe that you’ll find that resembles a homemade pie base from regular wheat flour, but its made from a mix of almond flour, coconut flour and a secret ingredient that you’ve already got in the fridge. Butter, or Lard (Dairy Free)
Above is shown making my mock apple pie using this pie crust split in two, using half for the bottom, and the half for the top.
This is how you should blind bake your pie crust, edges crimped and holes punched into the bottom so It doesn’t rise.
This pie crust would be absolutely perfect for my new york baked cheesecake, my pecan pie or even my famous Australian meat pie. The recipe is absolutely spot on in terms of baking consistency, edge thickness, crispy pastry style crunch with a flaky edge that will swoon even the fussiest of people.
The perfect pie crust not only holds its shape but also stays upright once you’ve cust a slice from the pie pan. Much like the photo above which features as much lemon curd as I could handle, the edge of the keto pie crust is just absolutely glued to the edge, which gives the tart such a great mouthfeel and consistency.
The mouthfeel of carbohydrates can be a sore point for a lot of people. When you give up bread, baked goods, and pastries, often one of the toughest feelings to let go is the mouthfeel. Wheat and other banned substances tend to leave a hole in a lot of peoples taste buds, where once a great piece of pie or crusty flaky base would have been.
This pie shell doesn’t disappoint, trust me.
