You can also buy ground almonds. I believe Bob's Red Mill has it on their product list.

It also makes a pretty nice gluten-free pie crust (if you grind your own almonds -- mill-ground almonds may have been ground on the same grinder as glutenous grains, so it won't be GF) with the addition of a wee bit of sugar and a bit of fat.
