SCD Legal Pie Crust

Prep Time 35 mins
Cook Time 45 mins
Total Time 1 hr 20 mins


  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup butter frozen and grated
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon vinegar
  • 1 egg yolk


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Place the almond flour, salt, and baking soda in a medium sized bowl and mix.
  • Grate in the frozen butter. Add the honey and using two forks, cut the butter and honey into the flour until the butter is incorporated into the flour.
  • Add the vinegar and egg yolk and knead into the dough until there are no more yellow streaks.
  • Separate into two balls, making one slightly larger than the other. Wrap in plastic wrap and place in the freezer for ten minutes.
  • Roll out the smaller ball of dough in-between two layers of plastic wrap. Flip into an 8 or 9 inch pie tin.
  • Place in the oven and bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until it is a golden brown color. Take the crust out of the oven and let it cool.
  • Fill with whatever pie filling you desire.
  • Roll out the other ball of dough until it is slightly larger then the pie tin. Carefully place on top of the pie filling and flute the edges. Cut 4 small slices in the center, creating air vents.
  • Reduce the heat of the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Place the pie in the oven for 30 to 35 minutes or until the crust is a nice golden brown color. Watch for burning along the edges and wrap foil along the edges to prevent burning if needed.
