    Serves: 8 

    • 175g macadamia nuts
    • 2 eggs
    • 130g soy flour or other gluten free flour

    Prep:5min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Ready in:10min 

    1. Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
    2. Place the macadamia nuts into the container of a food processor; blend until they reach a peanut butter like consistency. Scrape out into a bowl; stir in the eggs and soy flour until well blended.
    3. Place the dough between two pieces of greaseproof paper; roll out to about a 30cm circle. Remove the top piece of waxed paper, and invert the dough into a 23cm pie dish. Press into the bottom and up the sides. Remove any overhanging dough.
    4. Bake for 5 minutes in the preheated oven, or until light golden brown. Use in any recipe calling for a pre-baked pastry case.

    Thank you Crystal!! This recipe is amazing! It's easy and quick to prepare and it tastes great. On top of that, the texture is light and the pie crust holds it's form beautifully - so no crumbling and falling apart. I used it for a pumpkin pie I made last night and fed to my friends for a thanksgiving feast and they LOVED it! (None of them are gluten intolerant or coeliac, by the way).

    Soy flour gives this recipe a horrible aftertaste. The texture was great, but it tasted very strongly of soy.  -  29 Jul 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Thank you Crystal for this wonderful gluten free pie crust. I made a pumpkin pie with this recipe for Thanksgiving and my boyfriend who is gluten intolerant was very impressed... he doesn't get to eat pie very often. Even those that aren't gluten intolerant enjoyed this nutty pie crust and it was so easy to make!  -  10 Oct 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
