Raw Almond Maple Crust

Submitted by: BIPOLARPRINCESS

Introduction

This is a delicate crust that is good for soft fillings or frozen pies because it doesn't overwhelm the subtle taste or texture of the filling. Because the fillings are very rich, this crust is designed to fit a round 1 layer cake pan, or a shallow pie tin

Note: This is a very thin crust. If you want a thicker crust, increase the amounts in the recipe.

Ingredients

    1 cup almonds, soaked 8-12 hours
    4 teaspoons maple syrup

Directions

Soak almonds 8-12 hours, drain, rinse then drain again. Put nuts briefly (30 minutes) in the sun or dehydrator (30-60 minutes) to dry off, or dry them off with a towel. In food processor, process almonds until uniformly very fine. Gradually add the maple syrup, only enough until the almond meal holds together. Sprinkle and then gently press the crust into the bottom and sides of pie plate. Don't worry about getting the crust all the way up the sides.
