Gluten Free Pie Crust

December 20th, 2009 by Brandi

Just in time for the holidays …

The snowy weekend inspired me to warm up in front of the oven and do some baking. I always turn to Carol Fenster’s recipes for my gluten free pies, but since we’ve already headed north to Massachusetts to spend time with family, I was without my trusted cook books. Instead, I turned to Google for a new gluten free pie crust for the spiced peach pie I’m bringing to Christmas dinner.

What I found may be my new “go to” recipe. Cherie Funderburg’s “Beyond the Wheat”blog has a simple flaky pie crust recipe that yields a dough that’s easy to handle. I used Meister’s Gluten Free Mixtures! all purpose flour blend. Their products are a little pricy but worth the cost. You can buy the flours online at www.meistersgf.com.

Here’s a link to the recipe that makes two 9″ pie crusts. Fill with your favorite flavors. If you’re like me and have a freezer full of fruit saved from the warmer months, this peach pie from Epicurious.com might inspire you. The spices scream winter with a little touch of summer.

Happy holidays!
