Inspiration Mixes Gluten Free Pie Crust


The finished gluten-free pumkin pie.

Now is the perfect time of year to find a tasty, easy-to-make gluten-free pie crust!  I recently tried Inspiration Mixes gluten-free pie crust mix and I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised. 

This pie crust mix is priced right and each box makes four pie crusts.  The crust only took a few minutes to make, and after a short time in the fridge it was ready to be rolled out.  I just dusted some gluten-free flour on parchment paper and simply rolled out the ball of gluten-free dough and was surprised to see how easily it transferred it into the pie pan.  It held together beautifully and wasn't dry, crumbly or gritty like some of the other brands that I have tried.  The gluten free pie crust held in place and withstood the moist filling of my pumpkin pie. 

I was a little nervous about serving it because I have not had the best of luck with gluten free pie crusts in the past, but as soon as I cut into the first slice I knew this pie crust was going to be different.  The crust was flaky, and as you may know the first slice can be the most difficult to remove from the pan, but I have to say that it came out beautifully!  My entire family (even the non celiacs) enjoyed the pumpkin pie.  I was a little disappointed that we didn't have any leftovers, but that's better than making a pie that no one wants to eat. 

I still have enough pie crust mix to make a few more, but this time I am getting requests to make a gluten free apple pie!

I don't know if there is a simple answer to your question but I try to use "choose my plate" as a guide for my meals. https://www.choosemyplate.gov/MyPlate It basically suggests that when you sit down to a meal - 1/2 of your plate is fruits and veggies and the other 1/2 is dairy, carbs and protein. It's a really simple way to look at my meals and see if they are balanced enough. It also suggests getting very few calories in liquid form and avoiding snacking..... Good luck!

I use Swirve Sweetener, Pyure , Xlear brand Xylitol, and for a mayo sub I use Walden Farms, There was a avocado oil based one I use sometimes forgot the name. >.> I can not have sugars due to UC. But I might suggest using Big Tree Coconut Sugar for a deep rich low glycemic sugar. I still use them in my bakery. I will admit some stuff with dextrose, etc. bothers me....funny how it is only some brands and not others. Yet they can both be gluten-free, I think it might have something to do with the processing method and me reacting to something else in it.

I use any sugar. Never found one to be " unsafe".

I use Pyure brand stevia, and have no problems with it. Kroger store brand sugar seems fine too.

I've given up on all those processed gluten free foods out there and have stuck to eating a whole foods diet. I have noticed such a huge, massive, difference in my energy, mood, sleep, and well being. Needless to say I've been doing a lot of cooking but have been leaving sugar out because I don't know the safe brands. I tried using Stevia in the raw but keep getting horrible headaches when I use it. I saw that the first ingredient is Dextrose so it's not "raw". Anyway, what are the safe brands out there as far as white and brown sugars go? I made saurkraut and pork chops last night and would've loved potato salad. Also while I'm on here, what about Mayo? What's safe? I saw Sir Kennsington was gluten-free Certified.
