Dairy-free pie crust
Many traditional pie crusts are made with butter or shortening – ingredients that aren’t exactly heart-healthy. To bind the ingredients, this four-ingredient pie crust relies on milk rather than saturated fat. To make this pie crust dairy-free, use an alternative milk like almond or oat milk.
Serving Amount
  • 112 cup almond flour

  • 34 cup all-purpose flour

  • 12 teaspoon salt

  • cup milk (dairy or alternative)

  • Optional for a sweeter crust: 2 Tbsp. brown sugar

  • Step 1

    In a bowl, whisk flours together to combine.

  • Step 2

    Gradually add the milk, stirring as you go. The amount of milk varies every time. Use just enough milk so the dough holds its shape when you squeeze it together in your hand, feels supple and will be easily rollable.

  • Step 3

    Bring the dough together into a ball. Roll out the pastry with a rolling pin on the counter, or press the dough into a baking dish with your hands. Prick the dough all over the bottom with a fork.

  • Step 4

    Bake along with pie filling according to recipe instructions. For a no-bake pie, bake at 350° F for approximately 10 minutes, or until golden brown.
