Pecan Meal Pie Crust

Yields1 Serving

This pie will be the talking dish at your next gathering.

 1 cup Flour
 ¼ cup Sugar
 ½ tsp Hot New Mexico Chili Pepper Powder
 ¼ tsp Salt
 8 tbsp Butter
 1 Egg
 ½ cup Green Valley Pecan Meal

Preheat oven to 350°F


Place flour, sugar, salt and chili powder in a bowl and mix together.


Add butter and cut with a fork until coarse crumbs are formed.


In a separate bowl, beat the egg until slightly frothy. Add egg to the flour mixture and work together with your hands until it forms into a ball. It should feel soft, but not sticky. Place in the refrigerator for one hour.


On your work surface, sprinkle a little of the Green Valley Pecan Meal and place your dough on top. Slowly start to roll out your dough. Once your dough begins to flatten out, sprinkle on more Green Valley Pecan Meal. Continue to sprinkle and roll out your dough until the entire ½ cup of Green Valley Pecan Meal is incorporated in. Carefully lift off your dough and place into a pie pan.


Place a piece of parchment paper on top of your pie crust. Add pie weights or dried beans on top. Place in a 350°F oven and bake for 10 to 15 minutes. The crust will be done when it feels firm to the touch. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.
