I'd like to try this recipe with an almond crush instead of hazenluts, and instead of whole almonds I have already ground almond meal. Any idea re...

...: how much almond meal I should mix with the flour for this crust? (I don't have access to a kitchen scale right now, sadly

Haha! Thanks, Antonia. (It won't let me reply directly to you for some reason). I definitely appreciate the "being taught how to fish" approach.

based on weight of hazelnuts & similar weight of almonds, about 1/2 cup. start with less (say 1/4 or 1/3 cup) to make sure you're not making dough too dry to hold together. add remainder of the original 1/2 cup almonds if the dough texture/moistness looks ok

Well, I could give you a fish, and you'd eat tonight, or I could teach you how to fish, and you'd eat for the rest of your life. So, here's an idea. If you have a bag of almond meal purchased in the United States, look at the nutrition label. It should give you both a volume measurement and a weight measurement. Then, do the math. Hope this helps! ;o) P.S. I agree with Nancy's idea of starting out with less than that which is called for, to account for the possibility that your specific weight-volume equivalent does not correspond to the manufacturer's, due to the method you use for filling the measuring cup.
