Gluten Free Pie Crust Mix Tips
0

5 posts in this topic

This will be my first Thanksgiving where we will be making gluten free versions of traditional foods. I purchased the Gluten Free Panty pie crust mix. I know A LOT of you use or have used it. Any tricks or tips before I get started? I'm thinking of making a sweet potato/pumpkin pie and a fruit pie.

After mixing the crust, I pat the bottom of the crust into the pie pan. Then I chill the crust for the top at least half an hour. I roll the top crust between plastic wrap. Flip it onto the pie and I do not worry if it's not perfect.

Definitely use plastic wrap to roll out the dough.....the first time I made it, I made the mistake of flouring the counter as I always had with wheat flour and ended up using a spatula to get it off. :P

Also, it's a bit more crumbly after it's baked than what you may be used to but it's really good and worth the extra attention, in my opinion :)

My daughter the expert pie baker did some gluten-free pie crusts from mixes -- Namaste, I think -- last year for Thanksgiving, whereas I used Whole Foods frozen pre-made crusts for the pumpkin pies I made. We all, including my daughter, agreed that the Whole Foods crust was every bit as good as the ones that she had made, maybe better, and they are a whole lot easier!

In fact, even the gluten-y people were totally happy with the Whole Foods gluten-free crusts. Of course, pumpkin pie depends on its crust a lot less than fruit pies, so maybe my pies had an advantage. But we're both using the frozen pie crusts this year.

I use Roben Ryberg's traditional crust recipe from "the Gluten Free Kitchen." I just add cinnamon to the mix to help give it some taste. I've had great success with it. I use a Kitchenaide mixer and roll it out in between wax paper.

    • Hello! My daughter was diagnosed with Celiac non-biopsied about 6 months ago. When I recently went for my physical, I mentioned to my PCP that my daughter was Celiac, she said that I need to be tested. I took a blood test that day and here are the results: Anti-Gliadin IgA                     Gliadin Ab(s) IgA - 18.23U/ml    -      Standard Range: 0-15 U/ml   - Result: Positive My PCP told me to start a gluten-free diet right away and she will re-test again in 6 months. I was expecting a full panel, like my daughter had, not sure if it is necessary or not. We elected not to put my daughter through a biopsy, as she was just recovering from a ruptured appendix and her GI Dr. agreed that he numbers were so high that she was fairly certain w/o biopsy that she was Celiac. My DD feels so much better. Do you think this test is enough for me to start the gluten-free diet? I actually have cut way back on gluten, as I somewhat eat what my daughter eats. So my test may have reflected that decrease. Should I ask for more testing? Is this test sufficient? Thanks for any assistance!!  
    • That's hard.  You can try the "I come to be social,"  "I have serious food allergies", "I only come to drink"...... whatever might feel comfortable.  I know celiac is not an allergy but more people understand if you say celiac is like a severe food allergy.  Do go, have fun.  Don't let food stop you.  Yes, people give looks but honestly they get to know that this is just you and hopefully they will come to accept it. 
    • I thought it had all died down too so I started buying them for my celiac daughter. 4 boxes were fine. The 5th made her very sick for over a week.  Beware!
    • Agree!  That is a difficult spot to be in.  I have a friend who insists she can cook for me.  I have tried the "I come for the company, not the food", "I am celiac.." etc.  I finally gave up and said "I love you but no!".  It's very hard.  Very hard!  But stay strong.
    • I never ate at the fair but always "rewarded" myself with a nice glass of wine at the wine and beer patio!   The corn on the cob might be ok but I have to agree with the poster who mentioned that stuff at the fair probably isn't terribly clean.  Stuff your purse with snacks and enjoy.  My partner would feel bad about eating in front of my and I would just - I don't feel bad so that's your problem, not mine! lol
