Stir in the melted ghee and egg, until well combined. (If using vanilla, stir that into the melted ghee before adding to the dry ingredients.) The "dough" will be dry and crumbly. Just keep mixing, pressing and stirring, until it's uniform and there is no almond flour powder left.

Press the dough into the bottom of the prepared pan. You can flute the edges if desire; if it crumbles when doing this, just press it back together. Carefully poke holes in the surface using a fork to prevent bubbling.

Lift the top piece of parchment paper off the rolled-out top crust. Using the bottom piece of parchment paper, carefully and rapidly flip the top crust over onto the pie, then gently peel off the parchment paper. Use a knife to cut any excess top crust off the edges, making sure it still completely covers the bottom crust. Use your fingers to press the edges down to seal. Cut 4 slits in the top of the pie.
