I'm surprised no one has come on board with Bette Hagman's pie crust recipe. Last week I paid $5.00 for a frozen store bought gluten free pie crust, and it was terrible. I ate the filling and my husband choked down the crust. Back to Bette Hagman's recipe for me.I double this recipe for a generous 2 crust pie because I find this recipe a bit too short on dough for a deep dish pie. I make cinnamon swirls with the leftover dough.

I let the refrigerated dough sit on the counter and warm up....cold dough simply does not roll out easily for me, yet many pie crust recipes say to use it cold. I live at a high altitude and sometimes add an extra egg or water to be able to work the dough properly.

1 cup white rice flour (I used brown rice)

3/4 cup tapioca flour

3/4 cup cornstarch

1 rounded teaspoon xanthan gum

3/4 teaspoon salt

1 Tablespoon sugar

3/4 cup shortening (I use Spectrum)

1 egg, lightly beaten

1 Tablespoon vinegar

2 to 3 Tablespoons ice water

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flours, cornstarch, xanthan gum, salt, and sugar. Cut in the shortening until pieces are the size of peas. Blend together the beaten egg, vinegar, and cold water. Stir in the flour mixture, holding back some, until the pastry holds together and forms a ball. (Kneading will not toughen this pastry.)

Form two balls and place in a bowl; cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Remove and roll one ball at a time between 2 sheets of plastic wrap that have been dusted with sweet rice flour. To place in a pie tin: Remove top sheet and using the other for ease of handling, invert the dough and drop it into the pan. Shape it into the curves before removing the second piece of plastic wrap. For a crust to be used later, bake in a preheated 450 degree oven for 10 to 12 minutes. For a filled pie, follow directions for that pie. Makes two 9" crusts or a double-crusted pie.

I don't ususally make pie crust becuase I stink at baking / rolling dough etc. I have made this apple pie from Betty Crocker it is easy and my family loves it better than regular (gluten) apple pie. I found the hardest part for me was cutting the apples... it was good here is the recipe if you like it. I usually google betty crocker gluten free recipes and have very good results. Good Luck..

1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1/2 cup Bisquick

I second the Bette Hagman crust. It works up beautifully and consistently and gets thumbs up from the gluten-eaters. That's my go-to pie crust recipe for apple pie or pumpkin. I have even used dough frozen for a year and gotten perfectly fine results (yeah, I'm a slob about my freezer, so sue me). And if you bake the scraps and smear them with jelly you can pretend you have Pop-Tarts. Dammit, now I want pie.

I'm a huge fan of Better Batter flour. I make pie crusts and throw the dough in the freezer and always have it available. I used to put together all the different flour flavors, but found the already mixed flour mixes much more usable.

    • Have any of you had to get an attorney to intervene with a situation?
      First off, I hate that it has come to this. Long story short, I started a local community college back in 2014 (took traditional classes at first). About December Celiac hit me very hard. I went back and forth to doctors offices for about 8 months before they had any idea. Come July my doctor figured out it was Celiac (He also said I still had another cause too, but being a college student, I havent had time to do any other examinations) I'm used to it now being called a hermit and over dramatic and everything from family and friends and I am sure most of y'all get the same stuff, like my relatives call me a "germaphobe" because I wont eat anything that has come in contact with gluten, like say a deep fryer is used for breaded fries, using it for something Id use would be perfectly fine and eating cheese or pepperonis off of a gluten pizza wouldn't get me sick, its in my head. Anyways, I took a Mathematics class last spring and did sort of well (3.8 gpa otherwise) had a 78, which was my lowest grade, but the teacher made us do an in campus test for the final and it counted for 20%. I didn't feel well, but what could I do? Went and ended up bombing it for leaving right after because I got sick and my overall grade dropped to 64 or so. I ended up having to take her again last fall for statistics and went back and forth with the disabilities department, but they didn't care about my documentation. I went to every chain of command and they dont want to help. I literally can't go. When I say I feel like I constantly have the stomach flu, that's dead serious. I even got the patronizing "just use the bathroom if you get sick" from the disabilities department, but you all know its not just diarrhea and its not just a "well I used the bathroom, I am back to normal". Any input? I can't make another D. I am supposed to graduate this spring and D's do not count...

    • Second Panel has come back...advice?
      Update!  I went to my follow up with my gastro. He's hesitant to diagnose celiac without an endo, but said he will redo the blood work after I'm several months gluten free. My DGP IGA should drop after being gluten free, right? This could confirm the suspicion? I know the TTG levels drop, but want to be sure the DGP also drops on the diet.  Thanks! I've already replaced all kitchen equipment and pantry/fridge items. Early on I didn't realize the potential for cross contamination in restaurants. Now I do, so eating out has been put on halt for a bit. 
    • does your diet have to be like a perfection?
      Yes.  You have to be 100% gluten abstinent when you have Celiac Disorder.  It gets easier to be gluten abstinent, not because you get used to it but because of the negative effects that ingesting gluten causes when you accidentally eat something with gluten.  Nothing tastes good enough to go through a glutening.  As your system heals it will become less tolerant of your occasional lapses into gluten consumption--accidental or otherwise. You have to take this seriously.  You get used to it and there are some wonderful gluten-free options out there.  But you can't go back to gluten and stay healthy.  It just doesn't work that way. Good luck.
    • does your diet have to be like a perfection?
      I  think you need to watch where you get your medical info!    Of course you can't introduce gluten back in. And  of course you have to be strictly gluten-free and not intentionally eat gluten.   "The gluten-free diet is a lifetime requirement. Eating any gluten, no matter how small an amount, can damage your intestine. This is true for anyone with the disease, including people who do not have noticeable symptoms. It can take weeks for antibody levels (indicating intestinal damage) to normalize after a person with celiac disease has consumed gluten. Depending on a person’s age at diagnosis, some problems, such as delayed growth and tooth discoloration, may not improve. The gluten-free diet requires a completely new approach to eating. You have to be extremely careful about what you buy for lunch at school or work, eat at cocktail parties, or grab from the refrigerator for a midnight snack. Eating out and traveling can be challenging as you learn to scrutinize menus for foods with gluten, question the waiter or chef about possible hidden sources of gluten, and search for safe options at airports or on the road. However, with practice, identifying potential sources of gluten becomes second nature and you’ll learn to recognize which foods are safe and which are off limits." http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/living-with-celiac/guide/treatment
