Submitted by Dorina, who said she found this at - an organic foods manufacturer. :)

An excellent gluten-free substitute for a graham cracker crust. This simple, yet delicious crust is perfect for cheesecake, cream pies and custard tarts.

Prep Time: 15 minutes, Bake time: 10 minutes, Makes: One 9-inch pie crust

1 c. organic almonds
2 c. gluten-free organic corn flake cereal
2 tbsp. turbinado sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon (optional)
1/4 c. Wild Oats Organic Unsalted Butter or non-hydrogenated margarine

Place almonds in food processor. Pulse until finely crushed. Be careful not to pulse too long or the almonds may turn into paste. Pour into bowl. Add cornflakes to food processor, pulse until finely chopped. Add to almonds. Stir in sugar and cinnamon. Melt butter or margarine. Pour into bowl and mix well. Press into bottom and onto sides of a 9-inch pie pan. Chill for one hour before filling and baking. TIP: For no-bake fillings, chill crust for one hour, then bake at 350°F for 10 minutes. Cool, and then fill. Please be aware, ingredients in products often change. Always check the label for the most recent ingredient information. If you are unsure as to whether or not a product contains gluten, please don't eat it.
