This is taken directly from 'The Allergy Self-Help Cookbook' by Marjorie Hurt Jones.Use as a pie crust for any sweet pie, or double recipe to make a top and a bottom for a chicken/turkey pot-pie.

  • 1/3 cup whole almonds
  • 3/4 cup brown rice flour
  • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional)
  • 3 Tablespoons water
  • 2 Tablespoons oil
  • 2 Tablespoons honey (or agave)
How to make it:
  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Grind almonds to a fine powder in a blender.
  3. Place in a 9' pie plate.
  4. Add flour, salt, and cinnamon if using.
  5. Mix well with a fork.
  6. Combine the water, oil and honey in a small saucepan.
  7. Heat over low heat just until honey liquefies. (This can be omitted if using agave, because agave dissolves in water.)
  8. Pour into the flour mixture.
  9. Stir with a fork until well blended.
  10. Let stand a few minutes for rice flour to absorb the liquid.
  11. Press the mixture firmly into place with your fingers, spreading to cover the bottom and sides of pie plate. Pat top edge of crust into a straight edge.
  12. For a baked crust, bake for 18 min, or until lightly brown and marked with a few small cracks.
  13. Cool before filling.
  14. For an unbaked crust, bake 5 minutes.
  15. Add desired filling, and finish baking as the recipe directs.
