   The holidays are coming and people with gluten problems don't want to be left out of the fun. This pie crust, using ground almonds, is a good base for layered pies like Key Lime or chocolate.

Gluten Free Almond Pie Crust
2-1/2 cups of Sliced Almonds
6 Tablespoons Butter or Margarine
8 Tablespoons of Sugar
1 Egg Yolk (do not use white, it will cause the crust to bubble)


Spread Almonds on a baking sheet and toast them in the oven at 350⁰ for 10 to 15 minutes.
Put Almonds in food processor with metal blades and process until finely ground.


Mix all ingredients together and press into bottom and up sides of a pie dish. Bake at 350⁰ for 12 to 15 minutes until golden brown.


Add filling of choice, but if baking again, such as, with a Key Lime Pie, cover edges of crust with aluminum foil to keep from burning edge of crust.


Tips - Use Nellie and Joe’s Lime Juice recipe for a great Key Lime Pie filling or use the Chocolate pie recipe on the label of Cool Whip, using instant pudding and Heath Bits.
