Author Notes: I entered a pie baking contest and lost to this wonderful pie. I've made it several times since and can confirm it is deserving of the blue ribbon. katylua

Makes 1 x 9" pie

  • 1/2 cup finely ground almonds
  • 3 tablespoons confectioner's sugar
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 6 tablespoons cold butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1 tablespoon ice water (more, if needed)
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1-1/2 cup sugar
  • Grated zest of 1 large lemon
  • 1-1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup flour, sifted
  1. Puree almonds and confectioner's sugar in a food processor.
  2. Add flour (1 cup) and salt, and pulse to mix.
  3. Add the butter, and pulse until the mixture begins to hold together. Add ice water, if needed, so the mixture begins to form a ball.
  4. Remove dough from the processor, and press evenly into the bottom and sides of a 9" pie plate.
  5. Place the crust in the fridge while making the filling. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
  6. Whisk together the eggs and sugar in a large bowl.
  7. Stir in the lemon zest and juice.
  8. Add the flour (1/2 cup, sifted) to the lemon-egg mixture, and stir until combined, trying to avoid any lumps.
  9. Pour filling into into the chilled pie crust, and place in the preheated oven.
  10. Bake for 35-45 minutes, until set. Remove from oven, and cool on a wire rack.

I've been trying to edit this recipe (to at the raspberry topping), but the edit function keeps stalling on me. (I've been trying for 3 hours now.) I'm going to start from the beginning, so you should delete this version if possible. Thx.
