- 1.5 cup pulverized walnut pieces (also works well with almonds)
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/4t sea salt
- 1/4 cup butter
- 2T sugar
- 2 egg whites (or one whole egg)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Put walnuts into a food processor and pulverize – not just powdered, some 1/8″ pieces should remain.
Measure 1.5 cups of pulverized walnuts. Combine with flour, salt, and sugar.
Melt butter. Using a fork, cut the melted butter into the dry ingredients. Add egg whites and cut together until evenly moist.
Press dough to the bottom of a pie or tart plate (can be lined with parchment – makes removing the pie a LOT easier). Cook for 15 minutes. Crust should be crunchy and brown.
