Gillian's Foods has frozen gluten-free pie crusts. My Mother said they were good but not great when I just asked her about how the pie crust tasted. I can't find a picture of them on their website (http://www.gilliansfoods.com/) but we bought them in the freezer section of Natural Market Place here in Georgia. In the "order" section and found "9" Pie Shell This awesome shell is great for Quiche and fruit pies (8 oz.) 2.99."

I've tried both the Gillian's pie crust and the Natural Feast... yuck... The taste is important, more important than convenience. If it's not edible it doesn't matter how convenient it is.

Several tasty options, The Gluten Free Pantry's perfect pie crust mix, make up the whole bag (4 crusts) and freeze them... or use melted butter and crumbled gluten-free cookies (whatever ones you like) as a crust... I like Enjoy Life Foods Chocolate Chip cookies as a crust

I just tried the GFP perfect pie crust mix, and my rection was perfect? WTF? SO not perfect! What a pain in the butt! Not to mention it fell apart immediatly upon cutting into it.

My husband really liked it though - he liked the flakey-it-falls-apart-ness, though I didn't. I will see if I can find the two ready-made crusts above, rather than use GFP.

It depends on how bad they taste - sometimes convienient is better...

actually- if I have my way, depending on what Ii'm making, I just crush up gluten-free cookies and add butter and sugar. I did it for cheesecake and it rocked! Doesn't take much time either :D

I ordered one from Pam's Celiac Kitchen. I haven't made it yet, so I don't know how good it is, but is it already made and it is in a little metal tray so all you have to do is pop it in the oven. Their website is www dot celiackitchen dot com.
