Stir the gelatin into the almond flour in a mixing bowl. Add the softened cream cheese and beat with a stiff spatula briefly and then add the two beaten eggs. Mix everything together to form a loose dough.

Grease a 9 inch diameter deep dish pie pan or a quiche pan liberally with vegetable shortening. Pour in the dough and work it with greasy fingers evenly over the bottom and up the sides as far as you can go. Take a fork and poke holes in the bottom and bake the crust for 12 minutes at 400 F.
