Lavender Almond Pie Crust

When in the test kitchen testing out my lemon pie recipe, I was brain storming on what could make it better. I was talking to my mom about it and she mentioned that lavender and lemon makes a great combination. I knew I had to try it out! It wasn’t long after that Kevin and I took the kiddos on a mini field trip to a local creamery to test out their ice cream. You would not believe the combination of flavors they had. One option was honey lavender! I knew I had to try it just to see how well lavender and honey went together. It was delicious! When we got home I got started right away at making a lavender pie crust. Using almond flour, I prefer almond flour because it is gluten, dairy and soy free. If you have a nut allergy I do not recommend it. However, if you prefer to stay away from gluten or soy this is a great option. The subtle lavender flavor is amazing.
