    I just made a pumpkin pie using a crust loosely inspired by this one - kept the proportions of the rice and chestnut flours but cut the cocoa and sugar completely, doubled the salt: fantastic! I ended up using 2 whole eggs to bind all the flour together, but it made a dough of wonderfully workable consistency, if with a bit less tensile strength than normal glutened flour. The edges started to brown too fast, so we used foil to cover them, but the crust around the edge of the pie came out wonderfully flaky and crunchy and buttery. Definitely a keeper! Thanks for the wonderful idea!
