Preheat your oven to 350 and place the rack in the center of the oven. Lightly prep a pie baking plate if desired for nonstick.
In a mixing bowl, whisk or use a fork to mix together the almond flour, baking soda, ground cinnamon.
Next, in a smaller bowl, mix together the vanilla extract, melted butter, and the sweetener. Then, add the contents from the smaller bowl to the dry ingredients in the mixing bowl and mix until it starts to form a dough.
Transfer the dough to the pie dish and press it evenly into the dish to form your crust. Use a fork to pierce the dough a few times if desired to prevent bubbling of the crust. Then bake for 10 minutes for further baking later or up to 25 minutes for a fully baked crust. Allow this to cool before filling or refrigerating for later use.
As mentioned, there are alternatives to using melted butter as the fat that holds this crust together. Coconut oil, Olive Oil, Ghee, or Peanut Butter can be used in this recipe!
I also mentioned how you can add a bit of flavor to this sugar free pie crust.
While this recipe calls for Vanilla Extract, you could use an alternative extract such as a banana or lemon extract instead. Also, instead of using (or in addition to using) Ground Cinnamon, try Allspice,
nutmeg, Pumpkin Pie Spice or even Ground Ginger.
