My mom and I were baking maniacs the other week. Part of the reason was trying to perfect the paleo pie crust. With out further adieu, here is the paleo pumpkin pie of your dreams...
Paleo Pie Crust:
2 cups almond flour
rounded ¼ teaspoon sea salt
2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
Place flour and salt in food processor and pulse briefly. Add the coconut oil and egg and pulse until dough forms a ball. Press into a 9 inch pie dish. Make sure to make the bottom thin! Built up the walls and then crimp with your fingers. Bake at 350° for 5 minutes.
Paleo Pie Filling:
1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin puree
½ cup full fat coconut milk
⅓ cup honey
½ teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon nutmeg
½ teaspoon all spice
Combine pumpkin and eggs in a food processor. Pulse in coconut milk, honey, cinnamon, nutmeg, and all spice. Pour into the semi pre baked pie crust. Bake 350° for 45 minutes. Allow to cool and let set in the fridge for about 2 hours.
