After many years of unexplained medical issues, I was finally diagnosed with celiac disease in 2002. The first couple of years were a rough road traveled, but I am feeling better than I ever have. It is important that I share what I have learned over the years with others and to do my part to help raise awareness of celiac disease.
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!
