LAZY PALEO PIE CRUST
Easy, quick, lazy paleo pie crust for savory and sweet pies. Let your food processor do all the hard work!
Servings: 8 slices
- 1 cup almond flour
- 1/2 cup cassava flour
- 1/4 cup tapioca flour
- 1/4 tsp sea salt
- 5 tbsp butter grass-fed and chilled (or organic palm shortening for dairy-free)
- 1 large egg
- 1 tbsp cold water
Cut the butter into small chunks (half a tablespoon each) and chill for 10 minutes in the freezer. Lay them on a piece of parchment paper, so they will not stick to any surface
Add the dry ingredients to a food processor and pulse for 1 minute
Add the chilled butter one small piece at a time (half a tablespoon at a time) and pulse the food processor a couple of times after every piece added
Add the egg and the water. Blast the food processor for 1-2 minutes until the dough is thoroughly blended
Remove the dough from the food processor and work it with your hands until you have a smooth ball (less than 1 minute). Flatten it on a board with a rolling pin, placing it between 2 pieces of parchment paper. Place the sheet of dough inside a 9-inch pie dish and keep flattening and pushing it with your hands until the bottom and sides are thoroughly covered and the dough is evenly distributed. Poke a few holes in the bottom and sides with a fork
Preheat the oven to 375 F. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove the crust from the oven. Now your ready to fill it!
