Press-In Gluten-Free Pie Crust

Use this almond-based crust anywhere you would a graham cracker or cookie crust—think, key lime or a chocolate cream pies. Its nutty flavor provides a welcome slightly savory contrast against sweet pie fillings, and you’ll be pleased at how easy it is to make (just 5 ingredients!). Plus, no rolling pin needed: instead, press the crust into a pie plate with your fingertips. Baking the crust (or any pie) on a rimmed baking sheet makes it easy to get in and out of the oven. For a vegan version, use coconut oil in place of butter.
