Almond & Date Pie Crust

2 c. almonds

1 c. dates, packed about 24 (a few extra won’t hurt).

1. Mix almonds and dates in a food processor until doughy.

2. If moist enough: Mold into a big oval shape. Roll the ball out between wax paper to about 1/8” thick. Peel off one side of the wax paper and invert into a 9” (un-oiled) pie plate and press with fingers to form a crust.

4. If you want a crunchy crust, then dehydrate the pie crust for 1 hour.

Optional: You can also use almonds soaked and dehydrated.
