As you can see above, I’ve sliced slits into the pie pastry, and it still holds together. The #1 rule you need to know about this pastry, is that to get it nice and crispy, you need to baste it with egg wash (mixed up eggs).

It comes out looking super golden brown when baked for around 30 minutes, but be sure to read the recipe instructions for how to get it looking like this photo. Its really easy, and there are no sneaky photo tricks done in any of my recipes. This is the real deal right here.

  • In a large glass bowl, mix the almond flour, coconut flour, xanthan gum, baking powder, and salt together until each of the ingredients are indistinguishable.

  • This process has to be done quickly, otherwise, it will not work! – Spoon the lard into small chunks, and add it to the dry ingredients. Press the lard into the dry ingredients by using two forks. This can also be done in a food processor by pulsing the chunks of lard and dry ingredients for 20 – 30 seconds on high. Add in the cold water and continue mixing until combined.

  • Wrap the mixture tightly in cling wrap and store in the fridge for a minimum of 1 hour. (2 hours is best)

  • Once you’re ready to bake, roll the pie pastry between two pieces of parchment paper, ensuring the pastry goes past the edges of your pie tin by around 5 cm (2 inches).

  • Remove the top sheet of partchment paper, place your pie dish upside down on top of the pastry, and flip them both up the right way again, so that the pie pastry now sits inside the pie tin. No need to blind bake this pastry. You’re good to go.

  1. Monica says

    Once the dough has been made can it be frozen. Thanks Monica


  2. Bethany says

    Can the pie crust dough be frozen unbaked, ready to use at a later date?


    • FatForWeightLoss says

      Hi Bethany, yes it can be frozen, but it would be best to freeze pre-prepared in the pie dish to avoid problems.


  3. Jenny says

    Do you think palm shortening would would similar to lard in this recipe or do you strongly recommend the lard? Thank you!


    • FatForWeightLoss says

      Hi Jenny, I’m unsure as I have never used this fat. I’ll leave the recipe testing up to you 🙂


  4. Bev says

    This makes only 1 pie crust correct?

  5. Brewster says

    Hi Aaron,
    very happy to see, and hopefully follow, an Aussie Keto Chef.

    However I am confused by the two recipes re Choko/Chayote pie and this pastry one.
    In your Choko one you tell about a base and a top (and yet the photo shows no base).
    In this pastry one you give an ingredient list and tell how to make a base, no mention of a top.

    Could you please make this simpler to understand for a senior male who doesn’t deserve to be called a cook, never mind a chef, and who has wasted a lot of expensive ingredients trying to cook Keto.


  6. Therese Bizabishaka says

    So this can be used for either sweet or savoury? How do you think it would go for a meat pie? Also ca you use chunks of butter in pace of lard?


    • FatForWeightLoss says

      Sweet or savory yes 🙂 If you’re using butter, you’ll need to search for my other pastry crust, as butter is slightly different.

    What oven temperature for the dairy free keto pie crust you didn’t say anything about it in your recipe
