  • 1 cup (2 sticks of butter melted and cooled)
  • 4 large eggs

Keto Crust

  1. Melt the 1 cup of unsalted butter and allow to cool. Set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl combine the coconut flour, sugar substitute, salt.
  3. To the dry ingredients add the cooled melted butter and 4 eggs.
  4. Mix all the ingredients just until dough forms.
  5. Divide dough in half to make the top and bottom of the pie crust.
  6. Roll out each dough half between two sheets of parchment paper. Set aside.
  7. Transfer one crust into a 8 inch pie pan. Being careful to smooth out any cracks.
  8. Note the pie crust will be fragil but the dough easily comes together by pressing it.
