Apple Pie with Almond Flour Crust

My daughter adored me for making her this special separate apple pie for Thanksgiving. The almond flour crust is easier than handmade traditional crust in my opinion. Whipped cream topping is optional.



Yield: 4 Servings


For Crust
1/4 cup blanched almond flour
1/4 cup melted unsalted butter
1/8 teaspoon sea salt


Filling
2 cups apples, peeled, cored and sliced (Granny Smith work best)
1/4 cup blanched almond flour
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon
1/2 cup crystalline fructose




1. Preheat oven to 325˚F.
2. Mix together almond flour and butter and press evenly into bottom and sides of a 9-inch pie dish (or 2 4-inch ramekins as shown in picture).
3. Bake the crust for about 10 minutes or until light brown. Place on cooling rack, leaving oven on.
4. Mix filling ingredients in a large bowl. Pour mixture into pie dish or ramekins.
5. Bake for 40-50 minutes or until brown and bubbly. Serve warm or cool with homemade whipping cream sweetened with fructose.
