a slice of pie is the perfect ending to a delightful summer
meal. Many people with Celiac think this is a forbidden pastime…well,
think again. Making delicious gluten-free pies your whole family
will enjoy is just within your reach. |
obvious challenge is the crust. Our solution to this problem
is turn to the people who already have developed a great pie
crust…The Gluten Free Pantry. The Gluten Free Pantry’s
Perfect Pie Crust is absolutely delicious and virtually indistinguishable
from the gluten variety. It is very simple to prepare –
a little difficult to transfer to the pie crust, however if
you are making a single crust pie, it is not critical if it
doesn’t lay in the pie pan perfectly the first time.
If it happens to rip, just piece in the dough until it forms
an even layer along the bottom of the pan (no one will even
know!). Poke holes in the bottom of the crust and bake at
400 °F for 10-15 minutes or until the crust is lightly
browned. Let cool before filling.
you prefer not to use a traditional pie crust you can also
use a cookie crust with great results as well. Try our Chocolate
Hazelnut Cookies as a great base for a cookie crust. We have
also had great results with Pamela’s Shortbread Cookies.
Just simply place the cookies in a food processor and pulse
until finely ground. Add about 1 tablespoon of canola oil
and pulse until blended. Press cookie mixture into a greased
pie pan and fill with your favorite filling.
