  1.  I don't see much of the Pillsbury gluten-free stuff and whenever I did find it, it was usually 'reduced' at half price to move it. Don't fret. I hate making pie crust, but even I found a pretty much fool-proof one that is super easy. It's a recipe I found and adapted to be gluten-free.   gluten-free Pie Crust-- this should make one double crust. Mix: 1 c. gluten-free all purpose flour like Better Batter or King Arthur's (plus xanthan if your gluten-free flour doesn't have the xanthan already. Use 1/2 tsp xanthan for every 4 oz of gluten-free flour or about 3/4 tsp per 1 cup gluten-free flour) 1/2 tsp salt 1/2 tsp sugar Add: 2 TB butter, melted 2 TB. oil 1/2 tsp. vinegar ~4 to 6 TB ice cold water (enough so the dough forms a ball) Divide in 2 balls--one piece should be somewhat bigger than the other. Roll each ball between 2 sheets of waxed paper so that it forms a circle. Peel off the top layer of waxed paper off the larger circle. Place a pie pan that's been sprayed with non-stick spray upside down on top of the dough, centering it as much as possible. Place your hand under the waxed paper and flip the whole thing over and press gently into the pie pan. Bake at 350 degrees for about 5 minutes before adding the prepared filling. Bake an additional 5 to 10 minutes.  If no additional baking is required, bake 8-10 minutes. (DO NOT OVERBAKE)   Hope this helps
  2. I find the topic of wheat starch confusing given the following statement in this research publication. (It would appear that the researchers considered the wheat-starch based bread as gluten-free.): Gluten-Free Bread from Sorghum: Quality Differences Among Hybrids Tilman J. Schober,1
  3. Yep! I stumbled on this old thread because I was searching for a good price on the Kinnikinnick gluten-free graham-style crumbs (I'm making 'magic bars' for the holidays and need to stock up). These are identical in taste and texture to the real thing and are a one-for-one replacement. No need to alter any recipes whatsoever.
  4. Sorry, I can't answer the grinding brown rice flour to make it superfine question (am wondering about it myself), but as far the shipping issue: Better Batter All-Purpose Gluten-Free Flour is a cup-for-cup substitute for regular all-purpose wheat flour and they just lowered their shipping charges to $5 for orders under $50 (from ~$10 iirc), and I believe the shipping is free if you order $50 or more. I just started using this flour in my old recipes from my pre-gluten-free-free days as a one-for-one substitute and really like it--doesn't have the gritty texture or bean aftertaste of some of the ones I've tried. It's very finely ground and powdery and already has the xanthan gum in it. Other reasonable shipping charges: Vitacost sells Better Batter products as well as other gluten-free items and has a similar s&h rate scheme --$4.99 for orders under $49, free for orders $49 or more. Amazon has free s&h for orders $25 or more (if the item is fulfilled by Amazon) and carries Better Batter and other gluten-free brands. Another place that offers free shipping over $50 is 'Free From Gluten". Netrition which carries various gluten-free brands has a flat rate for shipping of $4.95 no matter how much you order. They ship out quickly too--I always get my stuff the next day. There are probably more, but those are the ones I currently know about.
  5. Chi-Chi's corn tortillas are gluten-free.
