My Pie Crust Is Laughing At Me

Daughter: Positive tTG-IgA, DGP-IgA, and DGP-IgG. Celiac confirmed by biopsy in June 2013, at age four. Clear gastrointestinal, behavioral, and neurological/sensory symptoms since very early infancy, even when exclusively breastfeeding.
Me: Diagnosis still unclear after extensive testing: Atypical wheat allergy, severe NCGI, or false negative celiac tests? Doctors disagree.Gluten challenge caused acute gastritis, esophagitis, and angioedema that lasted 4 months and was eventually determined to be a sulfite allergy. Gluten light for 15 years, then gluten free since June 2013.
Long history of eczema, chronic diarrhea, steatorrhea, ataxia, peripheral neuropathy, infertility, chronic insomnia, low cholesterol, vitamin deficiencies, and joint pain. Improved greatly within six months of going gluten-free.

This may be cheating, but Pillsbury makes a gluten free pie crust that comes in a tub in the dairy section of Kroger. I don't know who else carries it. You just work it in your hands until it softens; then roll out between sheets of waxed paper. Follow their directions about transferring to the pie tin. My mince meat pie was beautiful!

I tried this recipe in early Nov & I thought it turned out great. It was my 1st time w/gluten free crust. I mad a pumpkin pie. I changed a few thing & am listing exactly what I did.
1C all purpose flour (I used Bob's red mill)
1/2 tsp xanthum gum
1/4 tsp salt
6 Tbsp lard, cut into cubes
1 large egg
2 tsp lemon juice
Combine the flour,sugar, x gum,salt until crumbly like a coarse meal. Add egg, lemon j until it holds together.
Shape dough into a ball and place btwn 2 pieces of wax paper. Flatten & roll to 1/4 in, remove one side of wax paper & invert into 9" pie pan, remove other sheet of wax paper, cut off excess, crimp edges, put in filling. It worked great for a pumpkin pie. as I said I made some changes in the original recipe
