1 1 (9 inch) unbaked pie crust
1/2 cup slivered almonds
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/3 cup rolled oats

2. Roll out pie crust and lay into a 9-inch pie pan.
3. Combine almonds, brown sugar, oats, flour, and salt in a large bowl. Work butter into the almond mixture with your fingers, breaking up any large pieces, until incorporated completely. Cover and chill for 15 minutes.
