Olive oil crust method
Combine salt and flour in a bowl. Place bowl in freezer for 20 minutes. Remove and make a well in the dry mixture. Add olive oil cubes and milk. Mix well with a fork but do not over-mix. Form into a ball and roll out on wax paper. Turn crust out from the wax paper onto a non-greased pie dish.
Pie filling method
Beat first five ingredients until blended. Pour into crust then add the almonds. They will naturally float to the top and stay there when baked.
Bake at 350 for 40-50 minutes until middle of pie is set and does not jiggle.
