Default Almond pie crust

Months ago someone had a recipe for using crushed almonds and melted butter as
a crust for pumpkin pie. I'd appreciate a repeat - and - do you blanch the
almonds first? Or can you use a processor and leave the husk on?

I use walnuts, myself.

Why not? Same process except for the brown husks which walnuts don't have.
I would prefer almonds as I love the flavor and it goes so well with pumpkin.

Still need advice about blanching vs leaving the brown husks on the almonds
before
grinding. I personally eat raw almond husk and all but then, I don't peel
potatos either.
The blanching is a loooong process and I wondered whether or not I could skip
it.

Nan...

It works either way.

If you leave the skins on, you get a slightly "earthier" flavor. Off...
it's more refined.

But I would say you want to lightly toast them either way, if they're
raw. Raw won't work.
