Crust, Low Carb I (P)
Source: Internet
Yield: 1 pie crust

3/4 cup plain whey or soy protein powder
1/4 cup oat flour
1/4 cup almond flour
1/2 cup shortening
1 to 2 tablespoons very cold water

Mix together protein powder, oat flour, and almond flour. Cut shortening into flour mixture with two knives or a pastry blender. Add water, 1 tablespoon at a time until dough can hold together.

Refrigerate until chilled for easier handling. This dough can be rolled out by putting between two pieces of waxed paper, or you can put the dough in a 9" pie plate and pat it up the sides to the rim. Spray Pam on the pie plate before putting crust in. Oil your hands to make it easier to manage the dough. Pour filling into crust and bake per instructions.

If you need a completely baked crust, pierce the crust with a fork and bake at 350°F for 5 to 10 minutes. Watch closely to prevent burning!

Keep in mind that protein powder should not be confused with the "sweet whey" found in many health food stores.
