INGREDIENTS
SINGLE LAYER
ALMOND CRUST
Almond Flour = 240 g / 2 cups
Unsalted Cold Butter (Cubed) = 80 g 1/3 cup
Whole egg = 1 large
Salt = 1/2 to 1 tsp

Note:
1. For vegan options, use vegan butter and flax eggs to replace the eggs. 1 flax egg = 1 tbsp flax meal + 3 tbsp water. Mix together and let it rest for 15 mins to thicken up.
2. For a sweet pie, you can add 40 g / 6 tbsp powdered sweetener to the dough

ALMOND & COCONUT CRUST
Almond Flour = 120 g / 1 cup
Coconut Flour = 30 g / 1/4 cup
Unsalted Cold Butter (Cubed) = 80 g 1/3 cup
Whole egg = 1 large (
Salt = 1/2 to 1 tsp

ALMOND & FLAXSEED CRUST
Almond Flour = 120 g / 1 cup
Ground Golden Flaxseed = 120 g / 1 cup
Unsalted Cold Butter (Cubed) = 80 g 1/3 cup
Salt = 1/2 to 1 tsp
Cold Water = 80 ml / 5 1/2 tbsp

COCONUT & FLAXSEED CRUST
Coconut Flour = 60 g / 1/2 cup
Ground Golden Flaxseed = 40 g / 5.7 tbsp
Unsalted Cold Butter (Cubed) = 40 g / 2.8 tbsp
Whole eggs = 2 large
Salt = 1/2 to 1 tsp
Cold Water = 60 ml / 4 tbsp

DIRECTIONS
1. Preheat the oven to 350F or 180C.
2. In a bowl, mix the dry ingredients until well combined.
3. Add the cold cubed butter and use your hands to mash them into small pieces. Then switch to flatten the dough between your hands. The thin sheets of butter created will melt as the crust bakes and it produces steam which pushes the flour around them and that is how we get the flaky layers.
4. Add the eggs (and/or cold water for certain recipes) and mix until it becomes a dough.
5. Place dough on a greased 9″ or 23 cm non-stick pie pan with a removable bottom. Spread the dough evenly. Then prick some holes with a fork and freeze dough for 15 mins.
6. After the dough has been chilled, place a parchment paper on the dough and fill with any suitable weights. Blind bake for 15 mins, then remove the paper and weights. Cover the pan with foil to prevent over browning of the edges. Bake for another 15 mins.
7. Fill with any of your preferred fillings and bake according to your recipe. See this link for my keto lemon tart recipe – https://youtu.be/B-DWJnk4Q1U

Cold Water = 160 ml / 11 tbsp

DIRECTIONS
1. Preheat the oven to 350F or 180C.
2. In a bowl, mix the dry ingredients until well combined.
3. Add the cold cubed butter and use your hands to mash them into small pieces. Then switch to flatten the dough with butter between your hands to create flaky layers.
4. Add the cold water and mix until it becomes a dough. Divide dough into 2 equal portions. Wrap with cling wrap and freeze for 1 hour.
5. Roll the dough between 2 parchment papers until a diameter of 11 to 12″ or 30 cm. Gently transfer the dough using the rolling pin onto the pan. Press dough into the edges of pan and trim off any excess so the dough is only slightly higher than the pan. Spoon fillings onto the crust then cover with the second layer of dough. In the video, I used the fillings from my Keto Chicken Pot Pie so you can check out the video by clicking this link – https://youtu.be/eLwl5JQQ_Lw
6. Pinch both layers of dough together to seal. Then pinch the edges to create a pattern.
7. Brush with egg yolks (omit for vegan option) and bake according to your recipe.
