I use this recipe for pie crusts. No sure why they say don't use almond meal - I use almond meal and it works fabulously every time.

They say don't use almond meal because in the usa almond meal is very coarse, not like our ground almonds. They say almond flour when they want a fine grind.

You could use sunflower seed meal as well instead of almonds. I use a coffee grinder to make the meal and then sieve it and any bits that don't go through the sieve then it goes back into grinder.

I made this one a couple of weeks ago, had left over lemon curd and meringue and made a couple of mini pies, it seemed to turn out ok - considering I didn't really know what I was doing!

cook at 180* approx 12 - 15 min

I also roll this out a little thicker and cut out into circles for scones. it is delicious. esp with a bit of blue cheese added.
