This keto pie crust is easy to make and difficult to get wrong. If it tears or gets messed up, you just press it back together.
The crust takes only 10 minutes to mix together and press in the pan. This is a huge time saver compared to traditional crust making. You won't even need to get your rolling pin out for this recipe.
Almond flour browns quickly, especially at higher temperatures. If your pie requires high temp baking in any step then make sure you've protected the edges.
Even when you bake at normal oven temperatures, I would shield this pie crust. I've seen people make these with some foil. But the shields are very inexpensive to purchase and are easier to use.
The shield will protect the edges so they don't burn or get very dark brown.
Pre-Baked Keto Pie Crust
You can pre-bake this crust by baking it in a 300 degree (F) oven for 20 minutes. Then allow it to set and cool to room temperature before filling.

Other Keto Recipes
If you're looking for a filling to put in this keto press-in pie crust, I recommend my keto pecan pie. You'll find the link to the recipe below.
My original keto pie crust is a rolled crust made with hazelnut flour. It's a fun flour to bake with and makes a delicious pie crust. You can see that it also browns fairly quickly on the edges. Many keto-friendly flours share this same trait.
My Keto Lemon Pie is a great filling for a pre-baked keto press-in pie crust. I haven't tried them together yet...but when easter arrives...watch out!!
If you aren't keto but are grain-free...then this is my all-star super flaky grain-free pie crust. It isn't keto-friendly - but it's what I use when making my annual apple pie with farm fresh apples so we stay grain-free.
