This just popped up in my local Kroger. I bought some, but have not used it yet. Does anyone have experience with this product? Did I throw my money away or is it a good thing?

I was thinking about using this for thanksgiving for a pumpkin and pecan pie, was thinking I better test it out before I make it the day before and there is no backup.  So yes, I would love for you to post a review and any tips :)

Yesterday I made a chicken pot pie using the Pillsbury Pie Crust. The crust is very good. It is a little hard to handle, as are all gluten-free pie crusts, but it turned out very good. I will use it again, probably on a mincemeat pie for Thanksgiving.

Brooks, thanks for the report :)  I think I will try for a pumpkin pie. Haven't had one for so long.

 

Thanks again.

What about using it in muffin tins for mini pumpkin pie?  Could be easier to work with and how well does the middle of the pie crust bake?  (especially the middle of the pie?)

 

Does anyone have any time to try this or experience working with it?  I have been seeing some "non-stick" rolling pins too.

I like the mini pumpkin pie idea.  Then the extra can be frozen for snacks.

I roll sticky doughs out between two pieces of plastic wrap.

I had some of this dough and put the container in the freezer. Apparently, the company says not to freeze the dough! Oh well.

I have some more and want to make a free form pie. It has a fancy name that I don't know. You roll it out to basically round, put the fruit filling in the middle, then roll over the sides to partly cover the filling. I figure this is good if the crust isn't too pretty when I roll it out.

I didn't see pie crust dough, but they had a small bucket of pizza dough. I made it into soft pretzels - yum!

The directions say to bake the bottom crust a few minutes before filling. I did that and the crust was not at all doughey in the center.

    • I havent used it, not much of a baker tbh, but this one looks good: http://alittleinsanity.com/gluten-free-pie-crust-recipe/
    • As you say, there's no test, it's diagnosed by exclusion, so there's no metrics to check to assess compliance other than anecdotal response to symptoms. Conversely, I've not seen anything that says that NCGI can resolved or be cured either.  This paper gives a good summation.  Basically, there's not much research period! That is changing though, I think there's research underway which could help give answers.
    • First, do you have celiac disease?  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If you don't have celiac, I assume you have Non-celiac gluten Intolerance because no one would stick to the gluten-free diet for six years unless you have had reductions in symptoms.  There is no test for NCGI unfortunately.  So, it is hard to say if gluten has been sneaking into your diet.  You really are going to have to try to figure out if you are getting gluten into your diet.  If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.  I am not sure about NCGI.  Not much research has been done.  Maybe others can chime in?    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
