I was a little skeptical of this next recipe because it's main ingredient are nuts. I'm not a huge nut fan by any means. But goodness sakes. Pecans, butter and sugar- all baked together- create this magical flavor. It's so good, it's changing my mind about ol' nuts.
This crust works best with a custard style pie. I've tried apple pie and pumpkin pie but the crust tends to get a little mushy with those. A cheesecake would be yummy with it too!
It's really simple to throw together. No rolling. Just press it into you pan. Enjoy!
Grain Free Pecan Pie Crust
- In a food processor grind your nuts, cinnamon and sugar together until it resembles a meal. Mix in the melted butter until well combined.
- Press the mixture into your pie pan. Chill the crust for 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
- Place the crust on a cookie sheet in the middle rack of your oven and bake about 15 minutes or until lightly brown. Watch carefully, nuts burn easily. Cool completely before filling.
