If you follow a keto diet, it can be hard to enjoy some of your favorite sweet and savory pies. This recipe for a keto pie crust is the solution. With only four ingredients, it comes together in no time and is incredibly versatile for a variety of recipes.
This pie crust is quickly and easily combined in a mixing bowl, then pressed into a pan. It works well for removable bottom tart pans or traditional 9-inch pie pans. Since this no-fuss crust is pressed into the bottom and up the sides of a pan, there's no need to worry about rolling out the dough and fluting the edges as with traditional pie crusts. Once in the pan, you can refrigerate the crust for later use or pop it in the oven for a par-baked or fully baked pie crust. After you prepare the crust, simply follow the directions for your favorite sweet or savory pie.
Gather the ingredients.
If planning to par-bake or fully bake crust, preheat oven to 350 F.
In a medium bowl, whisk together coconut flour and salt, breaking up any lumps in flour.
Add eggs and coconut oil to bowl, stirring until completely combined.
Press dough evenly into bottom and up sides of a tart tin with a removable bottom or 9-inch pie pan.
Prick bottom of crust all over with a fork to release any steam that will accumulate. (This is called docking.) The crust can be loosely covered with plastic wrap and refrigerated until ready to fill and bake. Otherwise, you can proceed with a par-baked or fully baked pie crust.
If a recipe calls for a par-baked crust, bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes. Then, remove from oven and cool completely on a wire rack. Add desired filling and bake according to recipe directions.
If a recipe calls for a fully baked crust, bake in preheated oven for 23 to 27 minutes, or until it is light golden brown. Remove from oven, and cool completely on a wire rack before proceeding with recipe directions that call for a fully baked crust.
