MAKJ – Low Carb Basic Nut Crust (any nut will do) – Updated

Pecan Praline Crust
Serves 12

  • 6 tablespoons hot melted butter
  • 1 1/2 cup almond meal (this would be good with any nuts)
  • 3/4 cup Splenda (or sugar, if that is not an issue for you)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon  (This is optional but it almost tastes like brown sugar has been added)

Directions
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Mix the dry ingredients first. Pour melted butter over the dry ingredients, then mix thoroughly. Press it evenly into the bottom of a deep-dish pie pan or generously buttered spring-form pan (I used a flat bottomed glass since my finger inevitably pokes through the bottom of the crust). Do not try to run this crust up the sides. When you bake it, it just falls all over the place.  Bake for 15 minutes, or until set. Remove crust from oven and allow to cool completely.
