Tips for Making Keto Pie Crust
Use cold butter. Don’t take the butter out until you are about to put it in the food processor.

Do not over bake. Keep an eye on the oven when you are baking the keto pie crust.
Smooth pie crust and even it well. You do not want an uneven pie crust or it will not bake evenly. I used a rubber spatula to help smooth.
