Gluten Free Pie Crust Recipe

Preparation Time: 20 minutesCooking Time: 10 minutes

Use this recipe to replace any pie crust in a traditional recipe.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 Cups All-Purpose Gluten Free Flour
  • 6 Tablespoons salted butter
  • cold water

Instructions

  1. Cut up the cold butter into chunks and work into the flour using a pasty claw, a fork, or a stand mixer. 
  2. You will know it is done when you can hardly see the chunks of butter and mixture stick together when pressed. 
  3. Add cold water a little at a time until desired consistency is reached. Add no more than 1 Tablespoon at a time and mix in. 
  4. You will know it is done when it sticks together enough to become a dough ball and can be rolled with a rolling pin without crumbling.
  5. Press into a greased pie dish and bake until it starts to brown before adding fillings. 
  6. *Note that you can replace the flour blend above with any gluten free blend, the best replacement is Bob's Red Mill 1:1 Gluten Free Flour (the one that is rice-based, not garbanzo bean flour-based). 
  7. *To top a pie, I recommend cutting out shapes and using a spatula to place them on top instead of trying to create lattice on top - it looks great and there is less chance of breakage!

Fawn

My passion is supporting those who need to be gluten free. After my family had to transition to eating gluten free I realized how difficult it is. It is more than finding a recipe. It is about how to navigate social situations, deal with isolation, and other things that come along with it. I live in Oregon with my family, cats, and chickens.
