Prep Time 20 minutes
Servings 8


  • Food processor Or medium bowl and wooden spoon
  • Measuring spoons and cups
  • Pie Plate I prefer glass; it heats up gently/evenly and you can see through it for doneness. Coat with cooking spray or butter


  • 1 Cup Carbolose Flour Available online. Or substitute with white flour which will increase to 15 carbs per slice. I prefer Flourish All Purpose Flour. It has less carbs and 5X the fiber than regular white flour which helps to slow the absorption of glucose.
  • ½ Cup Almond Flour
  • ½ Cup Cold Butter Cut into cubes
  • 2 Cold Eggs
  • 3 Tbsp Ice Water


  • Set oven temperature according to your pie instructions.
  • Gather all ingredients and tools to save you time!
  • Add butter, flour, almond flour, and eggs into food processor.
  • While processor is on, pour in 1 tbsp of cold water at a time from the top until a dough ball is formed. Be patient, it will form! If using a bowl, mix well with a spoon or pastry cutter and form into a ball. You can freeze the dough ball in a ziplock bag if making ahead.
  • With your hands and the back of a measuring cup, gently press the dough into the bottom and sides of the pie plate. Use the back of a fork to crimp edges.
  • Fill with your favorite pie or quiche filling. Option to bake just the crust with no filling at 350F for 20-25 minutes for a cold pie filling.
  • Follow your usual baking time for pie filling. Check the crust for doneness 10-15 minutes beforehand. If the crust is golden, cover with foil until pie filling is done.
  • Let cool before slicing. Here is a piecrust for quiche, so good!
